The Winner of the Trade: Global Port Gets More than What They Lost

Many people thought the KaTropa gained more in Terrence Romeo deal but they're wrong

For many years, Terrence Romeo has been known as the face of the Global Port Batang Pier. To begin with, he was an MVP in his college years in the UAAP while playing for the Far Eastern University Tamaraws. In the PBA, he has yet to win a championship but he has achieved so much more which includes 3 scoring titles, making him one of the best-scoring guards in the PBA. 

And just like that, he was traded to the Talk N Text KaTropa alongside Yousef Taha in exchange for Moala Tautuaa and two draft picks.

Wait! What?

Moala Tautuaa and two draft picks?

You've read it right, folks.

As a result, the KaTropa just got themselves one of the most explosive backcourt duos in the PBA- at least on paper. At one side, you got the best point guard in Asia in Jayson Castro and at the other side, you got Terrence Romeo, a three-time scoring champion. Now, put a healthy Troy Rosario and an improving RR Pogoy and you now have a TNT that is already equipped with more scorers to challenge the San Miguel Beermen come the mid-season Commissioner's Cup. 

Does this mean that the Batang Pier will be back to square one?

Not necessarily.

In fact, the Batang Pier were competitive during the Philippine Cup even without Terrence Romeo who was out due to injury. Global Port just barely missed the semifinals and lost both games in which Romeo played in. 

Sure, Moala Tautuaa hasn't lived up to expectations despite being drafted as the top pick in the 2015 PBA Draft by a TNT squad that was already loaded in the frontline but with Global Port under Coach Pido Jarencio, this gives Moala a chance to get a fresh reset in his PBA career and play in his natural position which is the power forward. And, with the two draft picks from TNT, Batang Pier can get newer talents in 2020 and 2021. 

So yes, it's a win-win situation for Global Port.


While there's no denying the fact that TNT got themselves a big upgrade, Global Port actually got what it needed the most from the trade: getting rid of a player whose happiness isn't being with them, anymore. It will allow Pido Jarencio and company to move on easier and start anew. Plus, the trade will now allow Stanley Pringle to grow furthermore now that he's free from the shadows of Terrence Romeo. In fact, Pringle has gone as the Batang Pier's leading scorer in the absence of Romeo so the trade formalizes Pringle's "promotion" as the new leader of his team.
