Mbenga expresses keen interest in hooking up with Kings, says agent

Seven-year NBA veteran DJ Mbenga may soon find himself donning a Ginebra uniform. nba.com

IT appears the feeling is mutual for former Los Angeles Lakers center DJ Mbenga and Barangay Ginebra.

“Ginebra seems interesting,” Mbenga was quoted as saying by import agent Sheryl Reyes, who chatted with the former two-time NBA champion as negotiations for his possible signing of the Kings appear to be progressing positively at this point.

“He really sounded positive.”

The lady agent said Mbenga - eyed as a replacement for Herbert Hill - is now carefully doing his homework trying to learn more about the Ginebra franchise and its current players.

The 7-foot Congolese-Belgian in particular wants to see videotapes of some of the team’s games and those of players Mark Caguioa, LA Tenorio, Rudy Hatfield, and Chris Ellis.

“Coach Alfrancis (Chua) will be sending me the highlights of their game, which I will send din later (to Mbenga),” said Reyes, rating the chances of convincing the seven-year NBA to try out the local league at "85 percent."

“Gusto niya kasing makita if there’s a big possibility he can win a championship with the team (Ginebra),” added Reyes. “Medyo concerned kasi siya sa role niya na maging go-to-guy.”

That Mbenga is very particular with the Kings' title chances is understandable.

According to Reyes, Mbenga was a little bit disappointed with his recent stint in the Chinese Basketball Association, where he and former NBA star Tracy McGrady suited up for a lottery-bound team (Qingdao DoubleStar).

“Mahina `yung locals nila, tapos sa kanila iniaasa,” said Reyes of Mbenga’s China stop.

But the situation will definitely be a lot different with Ginebra.

“I think with the way he’s looking at the welcome of the fans, and the hype Philippine media is giving him, I am hoping he will have yes for an answer,” Reyes said.

At the latest, the lady agent expects to have a reply from the 32-year-old Mbenga by late Wednesday night or by Thursday.

sana pumirma na sya, ayos tong import na to, rebounder and blocker... napanood ko laro nito minsan sa laro nya sa lakers, he can block twice mas malupit kay dwight yun nga lang kulang sa exposure, kaya hindi ma develop ang skills, swak sa kanya ang ginebra since meron naman tayo mga local scorer like LA, JJ and MC47... tska rebound, inside presence at block lang naman talaga ang hinahanap natin and besides may angas din to, swak na swak sa attitude ng ginebra, sana makuha natin kapalit ni Hill lalo pa ngayon na pwede na pabalikin ni coach tim si bowles, kapag nasa atin si mbenga may pantapat na tayo sa mala halimaw na import na yun

ang kinababahala ko dito eh kapag nakuha nga ng ginebra sya, eh marunong na ba talaga ang mga refs dito sa PBA na tumingin sa mga blocks kung ano ang goaltending at ano ang hindi..
