Paul Harris to reinforce Phoenix

Former TNT champion import Paul Harris will be making his PBA comeback soon to reinforce the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters.

Phoenix coach Topex Robinson confirmed the development as reported by PBA Rush Monday, Nov. 1.

Harris was a resident import for then-Tropang Texters, playing three conferences alongside PBA great Jimmy Alapag and veteran guard Jayson Castro.

The Syracuse forward helped TNT capture the Commissioner's Cup title in 2011.

He returned in 2012 and 2014 but only led the squad to a semifinal run.

Harris made another PBA comeback in 2016 with Ginebra but suffered a hyperextended right thumb which resulted in a replacement with Justin Brownlee, who eventually became a four-time PBA champion and the 2018 Best Import of the Conference in the Commissioner's Cup.

"He’s a winner, has a great attitude and work ethics," Robinson said of Harris in the report.

The PBA is fresh from culminating the Philippine Cup, crowning TNT as its All-Filipino kings.

Up next is the Governors' Cup as the league board announced last March that it will kick off a two-conference season for this year.
