If everything falls into place, there may be another PBA trade happening soon and the main protagonists could be the same teams that closed a swash-buckling deal earlier this year. There were only a handful of boggling trades that occurred this year so you be the judge which team/s are in this one (that is if you haven’t figured it out yet).
The buzz of this trade came as early as last week. Actually, it was through a Facebook alert from a PBA player who I got to indirectly meet during one of my player interviews. He has been around but he hasn’t really gotten the breaks , finding himself coming off the bench to spell franchise PBA stars.
Anyway, I got curious why he seemed so disappointed. Apparently there is a potential trade in the offing. Or as in his words “Trade nanaman!?”.
When I asked him, he just replied meekly “abangan na lang kung matutuloy o hindi”.
And so I did. Until today when I opened Twitter, there were a lot of tweets pointing to a trade that is nearing completion. And as most blind items you would guess, that initial reaction from this player got me all out curious once again.
Team Management reportedly met with their players and the coaching staff (from Sir Snow Badua) which could signal a potential trade. The question is who?
And wouldn’t you know it, just as I was trying to figure it out, this pops up in Twitter!
“PBA Trade: BGk gets noy baclao, dorian pena. Barako gets mike cortez, yancy de ocampo. Petron gets jimbo aquino.”
The tweet was made October 5, probably about the same time that my good FB friend voice out. Hmmm. If true, this confirms the rumors all along on how coach Ato Agustin wants his old boy Jimbo Aquino under his wing.
Dorian returns to the SMB fold and Noy Baclao too (Why!) .
Jayjay Heltebrand voice out too that they need a legit center and with Dorian there, the Kings just got bigger and tougher with the Junkyard Dawg. Will confirm with him later though, I just hope he answer my question.
For Barako, getting Mike Cortez does make sense that they are sorely lacking a good court general. However, it does mean that they are once again overloaded at the guard position. Cortez will be reunited with former Ginebra teammate, Willie Miller.
Folks, please be reminded that these are just rumors and pieces placed together. Nothing is definite. While swirling rumors eventually come true, this one is UNOFFICIAL!
Assuming this said deal is pushing through, what do you think? Would love to get your inputs on this one folks! Cheers!
UPDATE: Ok got to ask Dorian just now and he is not aware. But hoping??? Crazy guy! hahaha
