Barako Bull Energy Cola acquires the services of NBA veteran DJ Mbenga



As much as other teams want him, it is the Barako Bull Energy Cola who quietly landed DJ Mbenga, the NBA veteran who was lured by Alaska, GlobalPort and Barangay Ginebra.

Mbenga came in Tuesday, April 2 and is expected to join Barako's practice Thursday at the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo City.

The 8-year NBA veteran replaces Evan Brock with the hopes of boosting their playoff stint as they are at the bottom of the team standings. Mbenga had stints with the Belgian National Team as well as the Dallas Mavericks, LA Lakers (where he won a championship in 2009), New Orleans Hornets and Golden State Warriors.

The Energy Cola are coming off a win against the defending Commissioner's Cup champions San Mig Coffee Mixers 105-100 after six defeats.
