QUEZON CITY--Looking to shore up its wing rotation, GlobalPort took the services of former Lyceum player Jebb Bulawan. The PBA announced the signing on Friday.

Bulawan, who became prominent by winning the 2015 NCAA Slam Dunk Contest, was selected in the third round--31st overall--by Meralco in last year's PBA Draft.

However, the club did not sign him up, relegating him to the free agents list.

The Batang Pier picked the six-foot-four Bulawan from free agency, hoping to solidify its small forward rotation. They then waived veteran guard Jeff Viernes and rookie guard Michael Juico in the process.

Bulawan is eligible to play on Saturday night, when GlobalPort takes on Alaska at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
