    Franz Pumaren sets to call the shots for GlobalPort

    GLOBALPORT will have a new coach when it kicks off its PBA Philippine Cup campaign Friday.

    Team consultant Franz Pumaren starts calling the shots for the Batang Pier when they debut against the Mahnidra Floodbusters at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    No less than team owner and current league chairman Mikee Romero broke the news when he announced on social media about Pumaren being formally named as the team's new head coach before they play their first game in the all-Filipino conference.

    Former coach Johnedel Cardel will slide down as one of Pumaren's deputies.

    Josh Urbiztondo signs with GlobalPort, Karl Dehesa placed on reserved list

    GLOBALPORT added depth and experience to its already formidable backcourt by formally signing unrestricted free agent Josh Urbiztondo in time for the Batang Pier’s PBA Philippine Cup game against Barangay Ginebra on Saturday. learned Urbiztondo was officially inserted in the team’s regular roster 24 hours before the 6:45 p.m. encounter at the Smart Araneta Coliseum as per league rules.

    The Batang Pier relegated Karl Dehesa to the reserve/injury list since adding Urbiztondo meant having a sixth Fil-Am player to their roster. Only five Fil-Ams are allowed on the active roster per team.

    Aside from Urbiztondo, other Fil-Ams in Globalport’s lineup are Stanley Pringle, Mike Cortez, Mick Pennisi, and Anthony Semerad.
