MANILA, Philippines – A week since its playoff exit, GlobalPort began its early off-season buildup after acquiring shooting guard Joseph Yeo from Barako Bull in exchange for the Batang Pier's 2016 first round draft pick.
The entry of the acrobatic Yeo gives the Batang Pier a reliable scoring punch for a franchise that is looking for a strong veteran leader.
"Yes, Yeo for our first round pick. No other players involved," GlobalPort team manager Bonnie Tan confirmed to Philstar.com on Friday after emerging from a meeting with Barako Bull.
The trade papers are now awaiting the approval of PBA commissioner Chito Salud....
The trade was announced by the PBA on its official website.
Heruela, a second round pick in last year’s draft, earned his way as Blackwater’s starting guard in its first season in the PBA. He will be joining a crowded Barako Bull backcourt that already has RR Garcia, Joseph Yeo and Chico Lanete....
After posting impressive numbers in his PBA stint, Liam McMorrow, import of Barako Bull in the Governors’ Cup, has a chance to take his talents to the NBA as he was invited by the Los Angeles Clippers to join their Summer League team, the LA Times reported.

After posting a league-best 6-1 record, the Barako Bull saw their campaign plummet as they settled for sixth place in the playoffs. Facing a twice-to-beat disadvantage, they were eliminated in the quarterfinals by Rain or Shine....

That dream, Pedro stressed, stays on.
“The letter of intent is already done and we are going to submit it in to the PBA office as soon as possible,” said Pedro....
MANILA, Philippines – National University coach Eric Altamirano is convinced that top rookie prospect Jeth Troy Rosario has all the attributes to become a dominant big man in the PBA someday.
But before looking far too ahead, the veteran mentor offered some words of advice to the former Bulldogs top slotman just before he makes the expected jump to the PBA – bulk up and be mentally tough.
