Ginebra agrees to send Cortez to Air21 for Taha





Mike Cortez's minutes have been drastically cut at Ginebra following the
arrival of LA Tenorio while Yousef Taha has made an impression in his
first few games for Air21. Jerome Ascano

AIR21 and Ginebra have agreed on a deal that would send the Kings' veteran playmaker Mike Cortez to the Express for rookie center Yousef Taha.

Express coach Franz Pumaren confirmed the deal to Spin.ph on Tuesday night, although the trade would still await approval from the Commissioner's Office.

Pumaren said the deal “will be beneficial for both teams.”

“Since Ginebra needed a big man, Yousef could surely help the team because we know after Billy Mamaril, they don’t have another big guy. Kerby (Raymundo) is still sick. On our part, we needed somebody to stabilize the team, which Mike can provide,” Pumaren told Spin.ph.

Pumaren said the trade papers will be forwarded to the Commissioner’s Office on Wednesday.

Cortez’s entry to Air21 reunites him with Pumaren, his college coach at La Salle where they won two UAAP championships in 2000 and 2001.

Cortez, who still joined the Gin Kings’ practice on Tuesday morning, is expected to join the Express’ team practice at the Hoops Center in Mandaluyong City on Wednesday afternoon.

“Mike has accepted the trade professionally. Alam niya ganyan lang talaga ang buhay sa PBA. Puwede kang ma-trade pag gising mo na lang sa umaga,” Cortez’s agent Danny Espiritu, said.

Taha, meantime, will be joining the Gin Kings’ practice at Xavier gym in San Juan on Wednesday morning.

Cortez, the 2003 PBA top rookie pick by Alaska, has averaged career-lows in minutes played, points scored and assists this season after the trade that sent LA Tenorio to the Kings.

On the other hand, the fiery Taha, drafted 11th overall by the Express, is submitting decent numbers of 4.1 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 19 minutes of action.

Welcome sa team Taha!

Goodluck sa bago mong team Cool Cat!

IMO, fair trade to, AIR21 needs a steady PG at ang BGSM naman needs another hardworking bigman..

Bagay din sa ginebra si taha dahil nga may angas yung laro nya.. sana lang magamit ang buong potential ni taha kasi balewala lang tong trade na to kung di nya magagamit si taha..

Pero noon pa man may chance na silang makuha yang si taha sa draft, diba una si ellis na draft tas pwede naman si taha o jensen diba? pero pick pa din nila si jensen kahit alam nilang same position ang laro nila ellis at jensen? palpak nga ba ang coaching staff sa pagpili although very promising si jensen..

Feeling ko rin di lalabas ang full potential ni TAHA (Viva MApua) hanggat si kalbo ang Coach kasi yang si kalbo ang tindi ng pagkahilig nyan sa mga gwardiya...parang walang bilib sa bigman yan....tingnan nyo na lang pinagkukuha sa latter part nung last draft puro PG.....anak ng tokwa naman oh.....

Agree ako sto kabs Ken. Duda pa rin ako sa PT na ibibigay dito kay Taha ni Kalbo. Daming ganyan eh ganda ng pinapakita sa ibang team tapos pagdating sa atin nawawala yun. Kasi nga kulang sa motivation ang coach natin sa mga players specially sa mga rookies. Para bang di niya binibigyan ng lakas ng loob or lisensiya sa loob ng court kaya takot gumawa ng mga kaya nilang gawin sa loob. Minsan sumosobra din ang pag rely kasi ng coach kina MC eh. Tama lang na magrely ka pero huwag sobra dahil lima ang nasa loob at marurunong maglaro ng basketball ang mga yan.

^^

mukha lol pero naghohope pa rin ako na magamit ng tama si taha sayang ht nya at bagets pa.. yan din ang nakakaasar kung papasok sila sa tenorio trade or casio trade, bakit yung latter parts ng draft puro PG ang kinuha dapat puro Center na lang, baka naman may at least matangkad for emergency kung may injured or foul trouble... anyway, wala na rin naman.. good bye mike cortez na lang :(
