Just days after landing Yousef Taha, Blackwater made sure to lock him up.
The Bossing signed the 6-foot-8 Filipino-Palestinian big man to a one-year deal on Monday at Aero Gym in Quezon City.
Taha was with his agent Marvin Espiritu, while Blackwater was represented by team manager Johnson Martinez and assistant Jacob Munez.
Taha appeared for a total of 16 games for Alaska in the 2021-22 season and averaged 8.1 points and 6.4 rebounds in 23.2 minutes.
Last Thursday, Taha was traded by Converge to Blackwater for Kurt Lojera.
Also signed by Blackwater was free agent Rey Publico.
Finally, Blackwater also locked its rookies Mark Dyke and Ato Ular.
Ular was the 13th overall pick in the 2022 PBA Draft while Dyke was picked at no. 11.
The two forwards were given two year deals.
