3-team trade okayed - Tubid to Petron?

Published under Manila Standard Today

PHILIPPINE Basketball Association commissioner Chito Salud on Friday approved the three-team transaction between Barangay Ginebra, B-MEG and Barako Bull.
The deal had versatile swingman Kerby Raymundo of B-MEG and Barako rookie Dylan Ababou going to the Gin Kings, with Ginebra’s Ronald Tubid and Reil Cervantes being shipped to the Energy and JC Intal taking his talents to the Llamados’ camp.
‘’The three-way trade was fairly sound and reasonable. The teams gave and received players and picks of relative even value and use for their respective purposes,’’ said Salud of the trade.
Raymundo, who is now in his third PBA team after Red Bull and B-MEG, and Ababou, already attended their first practice yesterday as Gin Kings, while Intal is expected to start scrimmaging with the Llamados anytime this weekend.
The new players from Ginebra and Barako Bull will have a chance to showcase their skills to their new teams when the two teams collide today in an tune-up game at Reyes Gym in Mandaluyong.
As for Tubid, sources indicate that Barako Bull is not his final destination in this whole trade involving San Miguel Corporation teams and the Energy.
Should plans do not miscarry, Tubid will eventually find himself back to the SMC group as he is planned to once again be moved this time to Petron Blaze, in exchange for fellow veteran wingman Lordy Tugade.
Meanwhile, Meralco shipped forwards Mark Isip and Nelbert Omolon to Air21 in exchange for Mark Canlas, Dennis Daa and a 2012 first-round pick from the Express.
It was done in a snap yesterday afternoon and the official proposal was already passed to the commissioner’s office.


Lordy Tugade for Ronald Tubid may not be a bad idea at all... It is a waiting game again for PBB and Barako fans.
