NLEX hopes for resolution of JP Erram trade soon
MANILA, Philippines — NLEX on Wednesday said it has “complied” with the PBA’s request to revise the trade proposal centered around Road Warriors center Poy Erram.
The deal, which involves Blackwater and TNT, hit an impasse after the league wanted a more balanced trade.
“The PBA trade committee has yet to approve the trade proposal involving NLEX, TNT, and BWE submitted two weeks ago,” NLEX said in a tweet.
“Our organization heeded the advice of the committee & complied with requests for revisions. We believe the latest proposal is advantageous to all teams, and respectfully hope that the committee will move forward to give the teams adequate time to prepare for the new season.”
The original proposal, submitted to the Office of the Commissioner on Feb. 17, had TNT shipping Marion Magat and a first round pick to Blackwater for a first-rounder, which, along with another similar pick plus Anthony Semerad are sent to NLEX for Erram.
To complete the trade, Blackwater would send Erram to TNT for Ed Daquioag and a first round pick.
