ROS replaces Steve Taylor with Ryan Pearson

Ryan Pearson will be Rain Or Shine's new import.

MANILA—Not even his game-winner against NorthPort saved Steve Taylor from being released by Rain Or Shine.

The team officially announced on Monday that Ryan Pearson will take over as its import for the remainder of the PBA Commissioner's Cup eliminations.

Pearson played four seasons at George Mason, the same alma mater that produced current ROS captain Gabe Norwood.

Pearson began his pro career in Europe before spending the last two seasons in Latin America, recently suiting up for Puerto Rican side Vaqueros De Bayamon.

The 32-year-old swingman will be making his first tour of duty in an Asian league.

Pearson is listed at six feet six inches, which could also make him eligible for the Governors' Cup should the Elasto Painters keep him for a little longer.

Pearson will make his PBA debut on Friday when Rain Or Shine takes on Bay Area at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.

Interestingly enough, both of the Dragons' two losses so far this conference came against teams with Governors' Cup-eligible imports, against Justin Brownlee's Barangay Ginebra and KJ McDaniels' Meralco Bolts.
