PBA fans weigh in on Standhardinger-Tautuaa
No one saw this trade coming!
San Miguel just sent 2017 first overall pick Christian Standhardinger to NorthPort Batang Pier in exchange of fellow 2015 first pick Mo Tautuaa in a shocking trade that was announced by PBA on Monday.
The Gilas standout has been in trade rumors for the past few months, but no one anticipated NorthPort to take his talent.
PBA fans try to weigh in on this transaction, particularly Tautuaa who may be a great fit next to five-time MVP Jumemar Fajardo since the former is having a remarkable moments this conference.
This is ridiculous but SMB’s offense will get better with Tautuaa. Gonna be harder to double JMF since Mo is now a reliable outside shooter.

Damn you @alfrancischua. I hope you’ll not regret this decision. But I think you will. Mo Tautuaa is just a better version of Nabong.

Wow Mo Tautuaa for Christian Standhardinger. Magnolia galaw galaw. 😲

Here’s one thing I’m sure of: replacing CSH with Mo gives SMB so much more lineup flexibility. Junemar-Mo is a pretty natural fit. Isn’t as awkward/uncomfortable as Junemar-CSH. Plus, Mo not as ball-dominant as CSH.

Mo Tautuaa’s transfer to San Miguel will give a new dimension to team’s offense & defense.
Mo can be a good June Mar reliever.
But more lethal is when they play together.
Other teams will have trouble defending the post.
Mo can spread the floor & provide space for JMF inside.

Still, some are still not buying in to the trade due to the fact that SMB did Standhardinger really dirty.
I don’t know why the SMB traded Christian Standhardinger. Yeah, I’m not a fan of SMB but I saw the hard work of CS. I mean, CStand was there when the team needs him the most. He helped the SMB to get the championship. During the fimals he’s one of the unsung hero of the game.
