Barangay Ginebra made another tweak to its roster after acquiring Julien Sargent from GlobalPort Batang Pier and parting with Paolo Taha.

The latest PBA trade comes just a day after the Gin Kings acquired Jeff Chan from the Phoenix Fuel Masters.

Taha was barely used in Ginebra which boasts of a loaded guard rotation. He returns to the same team he suited up for in the 2014-15 PBA wars. The former College of St. Benilde cager was the 29th overall draft pick by Kia Sorento in the 2014 PBA Draft.

Barangay Ginebra head coach Tim Cone wished Taha well on Twitter.

The acquisition of Sargent is expected to ramp up the defensive end over at Ginebra. The former DLSU player was selected fourth in the second round of the 2017 PBA Draft by Magnolia before being traded to GlobalPort.
