Career highlights and awards

Joshua "Josh" Urbiztondo (born February 27, 1983 ) is a Filipino–American professional basketball player for the Singapore Slingers of the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL).[1]

In 2009, Urbiztondo entered the draft for the PBA, but was not selected.[2] He was later signed by the Sta. Lucia Realtors. In 2010, the Realtors were replaced by the Meralco Bolts. In August 2010, the newly founded team gave away Urbiztondo and its number 3 pick in the 2010 PBA draft to the Air21 Express, in a three-way deal that brought Mark Cardona to the Bolts.

In 2011 Urbiztondo was signed by the B-Meg Llamados. In 2012, that team was renamed as the San Mig Coffee Mixers, who sent Urbiztondo to Barako Bull Energy Cola in exchange for a first round pick in the next year.[3]

In 2013, prior to the Commissioner’s Cup playoffs, Urbiztondo was dealt to Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.[4]

On August 25, 2015, he along with Jens Knuttel was traded to the Barako Bull Energy for Nico Salva and future first round pick.[5]
