2013 PBA Draft: Barako Bull trades its 3 first round Picks

3 11 2013

The franchise that is known for trading away valuable draft picks outdid itself by trading away all its first round picks in the 2013 PBA Draft. The Barako Bull Energy had the No.4, No.5, and No.6 of the draft but they ended giving it all away for veteran players. Here is what they exchange for the draft picks:

4th Pick – James Forrester (Ginebra) for Ginebra’s Rico Maierhofer and Willy Wilson

5th Pick – Terence Romeo (Globalport) for Magi Sison and Mark Isip of Petron (Yousif Taha was sent to Petron from Globalport)

6th Pick – RR Garcia (Globalport) for Dennis Miranda

The team got 5 veterans for the 3 rookies with some upside. It will be interesting to see how this trade pans out. In a quick glance it looks like the big winner here is the Globalport which will be the home of the FEU Tamaraw guard duo.  Ginebra has now assembled a very athletic young core with Forrester, Aguilar, Ellis, and Slaughter to join forces with Tenorio and Caguioa.  The Barangay would be feeling very confident going into the season.
