Petron, Air21 swap Yeo, IsipBy Celest R. Flores
MANILA, Philippines — Air21 landed sparingly-used guard Joseph Yeo, and sent bigman Mark Isip to Petron in a trade approved by the PBA Commissioner’s office on Thursday.
Yeo, a former La Salle standout who hasn’t seen heavy minutes with the Blaze Boosters, reunites with his collegiate coach Franz Pumaren over at the Express’ side.
Earlier this week, Air21 also acquired the rights to seasoned center and reigning Asean Basketball League MVP Asi Taulava from Meralco.
The 6-foot-4 Isip also joins his former Far Eastern University teammates Arwind Santos and Denok Miranda in Petron, which just clinched a twice-to-beat edge in the PBA Governors’ Cup on Wednesday.
