According to Coach Ryan Gregorio, Derby Ace will still use new Import Clif Brown on their game against Rain or Shine this Wednesday despite their loss to San Miguel yesterday. Although Lorrenzo Wade can be activated anytime, Gregorio is sticking with Brown for the Philippine Cup quarter finals rematch between Rain or Shine and Derby Ace (Purefoods). Clif Brown made his debut against San Miguel scoring 15 points and grabbing 14 rebounds but also missed crucial free throws in the 4th quarter.

Let us give Clif Brown another chance and let’s see if Wade needs to be re-activated in their remaining games.

Derby Ace Import Lorrenzo Wade has been placed in the injured list and will be replaced by Clif Brown in their next game vs San Miguel this Sunday, May 2 at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium. While Kerby Raymundo is still sidelined by a knee injury, the need for a post-up player prompted Derby Ace coaching staff to look for a temporary or permanent replacement for Lorrenzo Wade, who most of the time plays small forward for Derby Ace.

Do you think Derby Ace needs to change import Lorrenzo Wade?

Even though import Lorrenzo Wade has led Derby Ace Llamados to a 3-2 record in the current 2010 PBA Fiesta Conference, there is a big question on his defense and his decision making in end games. Derby Ace coach Ryan Gregorio said they will evaluate if they need to change import or stick to Wade.
