In a statement, the NorthPort management said Standhardinger has yet to sign, thus forcing team officials to trade him to the league’s most popular ball club and acquire the comebacking former Ateneo standout.
The management said: “It was a good trade, beneficial to both teams.”
Slaughter played his first six seasons with the Ginebra Kings but did not play in last season’s bubble which the team won at the expense of TNT Tropang Giga.
NorthPort is excited to have Slaughter as the team’s spearhead as the Batang Pier intend to bounce back following a forgettable showing the last time.
“The team is thrilled to have him in the team, knowing he worked hard in the US to polish his game,” the team added.
