Northport is done doing deals.
The Batang Pier have sent the newly-acquired Juami Tiongson, together with Lervin Flores and Joseph Gabayni, to Columbian in a trade approved by the PBA Friday.
In exchange, Northport will get Jerramy King and Russel Escoto from the Dyip.
Northport acquired Tiongson a few days ago from NLEX for Mike Miranda.
In dealing with the Dyip, the Batang Pier lose some depth at the big man spot but they get Escoto, who was part of the Gilas cadets pool that got drafted into the league in 2016. Northport also gets a more explosive scorer in King.
Columbian adds ceiling with Flores and Gabayni while Tiongson has good size at the point guard spot and should fit well with star rookie CJ Perez.
