PBA Trade Rumors: Kerby, Tenorio lead stars on trading block
Here’s another PBA Trade rumors brought to you by Sportspinas.com. Alaksa Aces Point guard, LA Tenorio and B-Meg’s Kerby Raymundo lead the trading block.
Several trade deals are in the works in the run-up to the PBA Commissioner’s Cup, including the possible transfer of Kerby Raymundo from B-Meg to Barangay Ginebra.
Alaska’s LA Tenorio is another marquee name being mentioned on the trading block.
B-Meg top official Rene Pardo has hinted in his Facebook account trade deals happening in the next few days.
“Daming (several) trade on the table. It’s that time of the year again,” said Pardo.
The former league chairman defended the need by teams to use this excercise on certain occasions.
“Trading of players is a vital part of the PBA. Sometimes it seems that a team is on the losing end of trade because not all factors are made aware to the public. The important thing to understand is that no team will agree to a trade that will not benefit its objective of being competitive in the league,” he said.
Reports said Raymundo is moving from B-Meg to Ginebra with Barako Bull used by the SMC sister teams as the third party in the deal. League disallows sister teams from making direct trade transactions.
Raymundo has played the best years of his career with B-Meg after spending his earlier years in the pro league with the original Red Bull team.
The former Letran star, a two-time member of the national team to the Fiba Asia championship, is just back from an injury.
Pardo, however, stressed there’s no final deal yet involving their team.
“Nothing final on our end as of now. Puro what if pa lang,” said Pardo.
