Rain or Shine is in the process of trading Sidney Onwubere and Clint Doliguez to NorthPort in exchange for Bradwyn Guinto.
The transaction, first reported by Spin, was confirmed by Rain or Shine head coach Caloy Garcia, who said the deal is still awaiting PBA approval.
Onwubere is coming off his best conference in the PBA after averaging 5.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 12 games in the recent Philippine Cup for Rain or Shine, which suffered a quarterfinals exit.
Doliguez, meanwhile, normed 4.2 points and 1.2 rebounds in just 6 games to wrap up his rookie PBA season.
Rain or Shine unloaded two of its young wings to beef up its frontcourt with Guinto, a burly big man who played for Mahindra (now Terrafirma), NLEX, and NorthPort in his first 5 seasons.
Guinto averaged 2.2 points and 1.8 rebounds in the PBA bubble for NorthPort, which won only 1 of its 11 games to finish at the bottom of the standings. – Rappler.com
