Bolstering its roster in preparation for the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup playoffs, Phoenix plucked Karl Dehesa from the free agent pool on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-2 shooter was dropped by GlobalPort to the unrestricted free agent list, allowing the Fuel Masters to secure the services of the gunner.
The seldom-used Dehesa only appeared for three games this conference, with coach Franz Pumaren opting to field in veteran Nino Canaleta and rookie Von Pessumal.
He averaged 9.5 points on a 34.6 shooting from three, to go with 2.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists last year, before toiling the bench this season. – INQUIRER.net
