Alaska tapped the services of journeyman Justine Watts for the upcoming PBA Governors Cup.

This came after their first choice Branden Dawson was measured to be over the 6’5 height limit last week.

The 29-year-old Watts arrived in the country two days ago and has joined the team in practice.

Watts was undrafted in the NBA in 2012 although he won an NCAA championship with University of North Carolina as a freshman in 2009.

After turning pro, he had stints in Australia, Mexico, Japan, Uruguay, the Netherlands, Poland, Qatar, Lithuania and Switzerland.

He is listed at 6 feet 5 inches.
