    JOHN Pinto has taken his act to Barangay Ginebra, signing a three-year deal after declining a contract renewal with Meralco.

    The 31-year-old Pinto became an unrestricted free agent at the end of 2021.

    Pinto ends his two-year stint with the Bolts where he emerged as one of the key guards of the squad since joining the team in 2019.

    The signing shores up the backcourt of Barangay Ginebra, especially with Stanley Pringle out for the conference due to a knee injury.
