Brownlee, the PBA's reigning Best Import and three-time champion for Ginebra, expressed his wish to apply for naturalization. SMC is on it.
Justin Brownlee's naturalization might just be a matter of time.
On Monday, San Miguel big boss Ramon S. Ang says that SMC will sponsor Brownlee's desire to become a naturalized Filipino citizen.

Justin plans to make the Philippines his permanent home and he wants to go all in here.
And San Miguel Corp. will be looking to make that happen.
"I think we will all be very happy if he's going to be a Filipino, di ba?" RSA said Monday during Ginebra's title celebration at the San Miguel headquarters in Ortigas.
"We will apply and we will sponsor him to be a Filipino citizen. So he can play for the next 100 years," he added.
Winner of three titles in only four conferences, Brownlee has certainly cemented himself as one of the best Ginebra imports ever.
RSA certainly thinks so too.
"I've seen so many impots come to this country, but I have never seen a guy like Justin Brownlee," Ang said of Ginebra's prolific reinforcement.
