The younger Sandrin, also known by his Korean name Lee Dong-Jun, last played for the Seoul Knights in the KBL like his older brother.

According to Coach Mac Cuan, the 6-foot-5 Korean-American swingman arrived last night after missing the Alab roster before the team began its ABL stint on Sunday night against Singapore.

"He was supposed to arrive by Friday or Saturday, but they said [na] nagkasakit daw siya. The doctors didn't give him clearance to play. And then [on] Saturday, he was supposed to have a shoot sa reality show nila sa [South] Korea," the Alab mentor explained the delay on Daniel's arrival.

Daniel will be Alab's second non-ASEAN import and is expected to suit up for Alab's next assignment against fellow ABL newcomer Kaohsiung on Sunday at the Star Arena in Baliwag.

He is also expected to provide the needed ceiling that Alab lacked in its loss to the Justin Howard-powered Singapore.
