There has been rumors circling around the net that B-Meg's star power forward Kerby Raymundo will be traded to sister team Barangay Ginebra. LA Tenorio, Alaska Milk's star point guard is also on the trading block.
Raymundo who was plagued by injury last year, and is just getting his form back, is being eyed to be traded to Barangay Ginebra for JC Intal and a 1st round pick by Barangay Ginebra. Barako Bull is the third team on this trade as sister teams B-Meg and Ginebra cannot traded directly with each other. If the trade do push through B-Meg's gets JC Intal, a 1st round pick and possible Enrico Villanueva. Barangay Ginebra gets Kerby Raymundo and Ababou. Barako Bull will have Ronald Tubid and KG Caneleta.
Several sites and forums have posted that the reason Kerby is being traded is because of a rift between him and James Yap.
But this is still unconfirmed, and remain to be a rumor.
On the other hand a trading LA Tenorio came to me as a surprise, I know Tenorio together with Thoss is the cornerstone of the Alaska franchise. Compared to the earlier rumor of Kerby being traded this one involving LA Tenorio for me is the least to happen.
B-Meg top official Rene Pardo has hinted in his Facebook account trade deals happening in the next few days.
"Daming (several) trade on the table. It's that time of the year again," said Pardo.
The former league chairman defended the need by teams to use this exercise on certain occasions.
"Trading of players is a vital part of the PBA. Sometimes it seems that a team is on the losing end of trade because not all factors are made aware to the public. The important thing to understand is that no team will agree to a trade that will not benefit its objective of being competitive in the league," he said.
Pardo, however stressed there's no final deal yet involving their team.
"Nothing final on our end as of now. Puro what if pa lang," said Pardo.
