Looking for a way to snap out of its funk, Blackwater is unloading a veteran center to get the services of a youthful stretch big.

The Elite, who are currently on a two-game slide, are set to acquire sophomore big man Kyle Pascual from Mahindra in exchange for Jason Ballesteros, Blackwater team manager Johnson Martines informed INQUIRER.net Sunday.

The deal is expected to be approved by the Commissioner’s office before the league goes into the Holy Week break.

Pascual, 25, is averaging 4.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in three games this conference for the Enforcers.

The former San Beda standout will join an undersized, yet hardworking Blackwater frontline of JP Erram and Frank Golla with import MJ Rhett.

Elite gets younger with Pascual, as he teams up with key cogs in Carlo Lastimosa and Art dela Cruz.

Meanwhile, the 30-year-old Ballesteros hasn’t seen much action with the Elite this conference, as he only played for one game. He went scoreless in 13 minutes against Meralco.
