MANILA—Even if Chris McCullough will be in the United States by the time The Terrific 12 begins, San Miguel will still have a tall foreign guy for the said tournament as it taps Columbian's PBA Commissioner's Cup import Lester Prosper.

In the lineup released by organizer East Asia Super League on Monday, Prosper was listed to play for the Beermen, the newly-crowned Commissioner's Cup champions, as an import alongside their foreign reinforcement for the Governors' Cup, Dez Wells.

The EASL allows the 12 participating teams to field in at most two imports for The Terrific 12, which is set on Sept. 17-22 in Macau, paving the way for SMB to sign up Prosper.

Prosper helped in the Dyip's charge in the PBA's mid-season conference, but they fell short of making the quarterfinals despite impressive stats from him and top rookie CJ Perez.
