Deal reunites NLEX with rising big man
Michael Miranda, whose career was on the rise with NLEX before he was traded away, found his way back to the Road Warriors in a deal that sent point guard Juami Tiongson to NorthPort.
“It so happened that Mike was available. Since Mike came from our team before and knows my system, he became a natural consideration,” said NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao.
“We did not want to give up Juami, but NorthPort insisted that he be the one included in the deal. We offered our second round picks but they insisted on Juami,” Guiao added.
Miranda played for the Road Warriors before being included in the three-team that netted NLEX center Poy Erram. —MARK GIONGCO
