Globalport has added veteran guard Mike Cortez to its backcourt roster as the Batang Pier consummated a trade with Blackwater yesterday as the two teams hope to improve their respective campaigns in the PBA Governors’ Cup.
The one-on-one trade also involved former San Sebastian College star shooter Ronald Pascual, who is in his second season after being selected by San Miguel Beer at No. 3 overall pick in last year’s Rookie Draft.
A former No. 1 overall pick by Alaska back in 2003, Cortez, 35, will provide depth and stability to the backcourt rotation of Globalport that includes Terrence Romeo, Stanley Pringle, Kark Dehesa and Joseph Yeo.
