Ginebra, Barako Bull and B-Meg in three-team trade proposal


MANILA, Philippines—In efforts to bolster its aging roster, Barangay Ginebra—along with B-Meg and Barako Bull—sent a three-team trade proposal to the PBA Commissioner’s Office Tuesday.

Pending the approval of commissioner-lawyer Chito Salud, Ginebra looks to acquire prized rookie and PBA D-League MVP Allein Maliksi from Barako Bull in exchange for its veteran center Yancy De Ocampo.

The Energy will then ship De Ocampo to B-Meg while lanky forward Rico Maierhofer, who will in turn be traded to Ginebra for sophomore guard Jimbo Aquino along with 2014 and 2015 second round draft picks.

The trade was received by the PBA office Tuesday afternoon.

There have been a lot of noise from the Gin Kings camp the past few weeks, and coaches have been hinting that a change in the line-up is needed.

If approved, Ginebra, struggling so far this season with a 4-4 mark, will have a big boost with Maierhofer and Maliksi in tow.

Barako Bull meanwhile, will have the chance to maximize the full potential of former NCAA standout Aquino, who has not been getting any playing time with the guard-filled roster of the Gin Kings.

For the Llamados, perhaps the need of a big man with an outside touch to complement the triangle prompted the team to get De Ocampo.

    @yahoo-JEHO635RHXYCHBAH7I653GAAJE:disqus Thoss? Alaska already bogged down that proposal the reason they opted for Plan B.  They should start setting their sights for 2013 Draft (likes of Fajardo,Slaughter).  They have the option to have a losing season or trade their marquee and valuable stars for next year’s draft.

    After first trade will be finalized by Com Salud, another up-coming trade is expected by Ginebra to acquire a legitimate center, one rumors pointing out to the former national player and it would take at least 2 to 3 players in favor of the said player.

    One sided trade, pabor lahat sa Ginebra. They get two promising youngsters while getting rid of an immobile beanpole and NCAA hotshot bust. Pakireview ng mabuti Mr. Comissioner!!!!
