2016 PBA Offseason Grades: GlobalPort Batang Pier


It was just a month ago after the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel won their first championship in eight years and the PBA already opened it's 42nd season. Let us examine how each team did in the offseason.

GLOBALPORT BATANG PIER



Players in: J.R. Quiñahan, KG Cañaleta, Rey Guevarra, Mike Cortez, Mick Pennisi

Players out: Jay Washington, Joseph Yeo, Doug Kramer

Drafted Players: Von Pessumal, Jessie Saitanan

GRADE: A


The GlobalPort Batang Pier look like a powerhouse team on paper. They've added another scoring option in KG Canaleta (who they basically got for nothing) and a reliable big man who can also shoot from the outside in J.R. Quiñahan plus they've  drafted sharpshooter and scorer Von Pessumal. They were just more of a complete team this season.

Imagine a projected starting five of Stanley Pringle, Terrence Romeo, Von Pessumal KG Canaleta and J.R. Quiñahan and a bench consisting of Mike Cortez, Rey Guevarra, Karl Dehesa, Anthony Semerad and Billy Mamaril, that's alot of scoring option in your team who can also do it on the other end of the court.

The Batang Pier were a team to beat this season and will have a great shot in the championship.
