Northport has got itself a new weapon.
The Philippine Basketball Association has approved the trade sending Kevin Ferrer to Terrafirma in exchange for former no. 1 pick Joshua Munzon.
The initial proposal was for the Dyip to send both Munzon and Javi Gomez de Liaño to the Batang Pier for Ferrer, MJ Ayaay, and a couple of future second-round picks.
The 6-foot-4 swingman averaged a career-best 19.0 points to go along with 4.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 1.3 steals in the 2022 PBA Governors’ Cup.
However, he only put up numbers of 12.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.0 steals per contest in the Philippine Cup; then 8.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.2 steals in the Commissioner’s Cup.
The Dyip franchise sent away another first-overall pick – doing so for the third time since 2017.
Roosevelt Adams was able to break the trend when he decided to go to the B.League and sign with Kagawa.
Terrafirma, meanwhile, receives a veteran.
Ferrer, a six-year vet, has been linked in numerous trades since arriving in Northport back in 2019.
In 25 games played this conference, the sweet-shooting 6-foot-5 winger put up numbers of 9.4 points and 2.4 rebounds.
