The Singapore Slingers have signed former UAAP standout Mikee Reyes for the coming Merlion Cup that will kick off at the OCBC Arena in Singapore on Wednesday.

Reyes, who played for the University of the Philippines, will be one of three imports suiting up for the Slingers in the annual basketball invitational tournament.

He is no stranger playing for foreign basketball clubs. He signed a one-game contract with the Kaohsiung Truth in the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) last year, firing in 14 points to go with two rebounds and two assists, according to the ABL.

The other imports are Xavier Alexander and Ryan Wright.

Other teams participating in this year’s Merlion Cup are defending champions Shanghai Sharks, Adelaide 36ers (Australia), Yulon Luxgen Dinos (Chinese Taipei), Jeonju KCC Egis (Korea), Satria Muda Pertamina (Indonesia), and NLEX-SCTEX (Philippines).
