Amid trade talks, Nico Salva did end up leaving the Ginebra camp and was shipped to Mahindra.

The two teams agreed to a deal on Monday, sending the seldom-used winger to the Floodbuster in exchange for a future second round pick.


Salva averaged 2.12 points and 1.0 rebound in 6.25 minutes this past year with the Gin Kings, and will be joining his fourth team in three seasons.

Salva was earlier rumored to go to Meralco, where he would have reunited with coach Norman Black and fellow Blue Eagles Chris Newsome, Justin Chua, and Rabeh Al-Hussaini.
