NLEX taps former NBA player Wayne Selden as new import

NLEX is set to bring in former NBA player Wayne Selden as its new import in the ongoing 2023 PBA Governors’ Cup, replacing Jonathon Simmons who played for four games for the Road Warriors.

Selden had previously played for the New Orleans Pelicans, Memphis Grizzlies, Chicago Bulls, and New York Knicks where he played a total of 125 games, averaging 7.2 points, 1.99 rebounds, and 1.49 assists.



He also suited up for Ironi Nes Ziona in Israel, Afyonkarahisar Belediye and Manisa Buyuksehir Belediye in Turkey, and Tezenis Scaligera Verona in Italy.

“We are officially announcing that Wayne Selden will replace Jonathon Simmons as our import for the ongoing 2023 PBA Governors’ Cup,” said NLEX team manager Larry Fonacier in a statement.

“There were bumps in the road just to get him here but finally, he has arrived. We are hoping that Wayne can sustain the momentum that we have.”

Selden will replace Simmons, who steered NLEX to a clean 4-0 card in the ongoing conference while posting norms 37.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 2.0 steals.

NLEX will go up against Barangay Ginebra on Wednesday in bid to make it five wins in a row.
