Wanting to get younger in the frontcourt, NLEX made its move to acquire Bradwyn Guinto from Mahindra.

A source close to the situation bared that Road Warriors are set to receive Guinto, the versatile center from San Sebastian, and veteran forward Chito Jaime in exchange for rookie guard Reden Celda and forward Jeckster Apinan.

The trade proposal was sent to the Office of the Commissioner on Wednesday morning.

Guinto turned heads this past season as he averaged 5.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 0.5 assists in his rookie year with Mahindra.

The Floodbusters, meanwhile, will have a chance to develop Celda, who was selected eighth in the first round of the past draft proceedings.
