The Meralco Bolts are set to see action in the upcoming 2019 FIBA Asia Champions Cup.

The Bolts will be backed up by Allen Durham and former San Miguel import Renaldo Balkman, according to the PBA website.

Durham was also Meralco’s import during last year’s edition of the Cup, where he teamed up with Diamond Stone.

The Bolts finished in fourth place last year after bowing to Korean team SK Knights in the bronze medal round.

This year’s FIBA Asia Champions Cup will be staged in Bangkok, Thailand from September 24-29.

A total of four PBA teams will be competing in international tourneys as part of their preparations for the PBA Governors Cup.

San Miguel, Blackwater, and TNT will play in East Asia Super League's The Terrific 12 on September 17-22.
