NorthPort is not done making moves ahead of the PBA Governors’ Cup.
Undergoing a major revamp, the Batang Pier made their third trade in four days after sending vastly improved Sidney Onwubere to Barangay Ginebra in exchange for Art dela Cruz.
The PBA approved the deal on Tuesday, November 9.
NorthPort first traded Sean Anthony, Sean Manganti, and a future second-round pick to acquire Vic Manuel and Mike Calisaan from Phoenix.
The Batang Pier then shipped Manuel to San Miguel in a one-on-one trade for former PBA MVP Arwind Santos.
Reeling from a failed title-retention bid in the Philippine Cup, the Gin Kings bolstered their roster with the addition of Onwubere, who averaged career-highs of 9.6 points and 5.2 rebounds in the all-Filipino conference.
Onwubere normed just 5.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in the 2020 season when he still played for Rain or Shine.
Ginebra finally let go of Dela Cruz after an injury-riddled stint that saw him miss the previous Philippine Cup. – Rappler.com
