After letting go of Denzel Bowles, TNT is not going to make its Commissioner's Cup debut import-less after all.

The KaTropa have secured the services of former NBA journeyman Lou Amundson who will make his debut Friday as TNT takes on Meralco for its opening game in the mid-season conference.

The PBA's official Twitter account posted that Amundson made the 6'10" height limit for imports after being listed at 6'8" Thursday.

Amundson, who played for 10 NBA teams in nine years, is TNT's second import this season after Bowles was let go last week for various reasons.

The former UNLV product has an NBA career average of 3.7 points and 3.6 rebounds per game and playoff runs with three different teams, reaching the Western Conference Finals in 2010 with the Phoenix Suns. He last played for the New York Knicks in the 2015-2016 season.
