SMB trade with Air 21 top rookies is finally granted by Salud

Finally SMB wish of acquiring Air 21 top 3 rookies was approved by the commissioner. SMB's revised offer now involved Danny Seigle, Dorian Peña, Paul Artadi and Dondon Hontiveros for Air 21's Noy Baclao, Rabeh Al-Hussaini and Rey Guevarra.

Salud said "This revised trade is certainly a marked improvement from the first trade offer San Miguel made to Air 21. I assessed the trade both on the market balance of the seven players involved. I'd like to believe that this trade isn't one sided anymore"

I'm surprised that SMB included Dondon Hontiveros as part of the trade. SMB have plenty of players in Hontiveros position which they can offer like Tugade and Salvacion. But that just my opinion. With this trade its evident SMB is on the rebuilding process of getting younger. Which was evident when they battle TNT on the just finished All Filipino finals, SMB old age was exposed as TNT was just a tireless workhorse through every game, while the beermen was gasping for air come crunch time.

  1. Masyadong nalugi ang SMC sa trade na yan. Puro great players at apat ang ibinigay nila samantalang tatlo lang ang nakuha nila at si Rey Guevarra ay malayo sa kalibre ni Hontiveros. Sana hindi na lang nakialam si Chito Salud sa trade nang SMC at Air 21. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  2. yup, d ko kabisado ang pamamaraan ng PBA when it comes to trading players, na pwede palang i basura na commish ang isang trade pag d nya na gustuhan.

  3. sayang tlga c hontiveros...hay naku d man lang kayo nag-isip!!!!

  4. dapat hindi trade c hontiveros magaling sa 3points at sa drive na kita laro nya sobrang galing sayang sya sa san miguel sayang na sayang sya
