GlobalPort's Jarencio hints at another trade
MANILA, Philippines – After six straight losses, GlobalPort coach Pido Jarencio said he is still finding the right pieces to assemble a highly competitive team.
Jarencio, who has yet to taste a victory in the ongoing PBA Commissioner’s Cup, hinted that he might ask for another trade to get the right team that will suit his coaching style.
“May mga aayusin tayong mga bagay. Hindi natin masabi kung may mga darating na bagong player o may player na mag-stay pa rin dito,” the former University of Sto. Tomas (UST) coach said in Karlo Sacamos' report on Spin.ph.
GlobalPort recently tinkered with its roster by acquiring Ronnie Matias and Carlo Sharma from Air21 in exchange for injured Enrico Villanueva.
Jarencio admitted that there were improvements in their game but this this not save them from a 92-109 defeat to San Miguel Beer on Monday.
“Ang tanong ko lang, bakit tumitigil kami ng middle of third quarter or sa fourth quarter? Yun ang hindi ko maintindihan,” he said following seeing his team’s collapse after getting close to beating the Beermen.
“Ngayon medyo may mga players kami na hindi bumabagay sa amin. [Kaya] hanap tayo ng players na bagay sa atin,” added Jarencio.
