NorthPort in talks with Jamel Artis
JAMEL Artis, known for no-relief outings with NorthPort, is being eyed again by the Batang Pier for the 2023 PBA Governors’ Cup.

The Batang Pier lost to Phoenix Fuel Masters in the playoff for the eighth spot in the quarterfinals.
“Pinapa-sign namin si Jamel Artis, yung last import namin,” said team manager Bonnie Tan.
Blackwater is bringing in Shawn Glover, while Meralco has retained KJ McDaniels.
