Two six-foot-seven big men swapped places after the San Miguel Beermen traded Fil-German Christian Standhardinger to the Northport Batang Pier for Moala Tautuaa.
The PBA Commissioner’s Office approved the one-on-one trade on Tuesday, as per a report from Spin.ph.
The Fil-Tongan Tautuaa will be playing for his third team since he was drafted by Talk ‘N Text as the number one overall pick in 2015.
“This is basketball. And you work with what you’ve been given,” Tautuaa said in the Spin.ph report.
“I’m happy to be in this position. I was happy to be at Northport, I was happy to be at TnT, now I’m happy to be at SMB. So you know, let’s give it a go,” added Tautuaa.
Standhardinger, on the other hand, has yet to comment on the trade.
The two big men will face other when the Beermen play the Batang Pier on Oct. 23.
