Jimmy "The Mighty Mouse" Alapag is recently reported to be in the trading block of Talk n Text Tropang Texters. Despite his decent play, Talk n Text has yet to string wins in the KFC All Filipino Cup of the PBA. Alapag has less playing time with the entry of spitfire point guard Jason Castro. Castro was picked third by TnT at the expense of forward Jay Washington. Turning 31 this 30th of December, Jimmy is still one of the premeire point guards in the league. In fact, his name is dragged on to the candidates for the RP roster under coach Yeng Guiao. I'm pretty sure he's still a juicy trade bait and other teams will certainly look to snatch him.
Where could Jimmy possibly go to?
Coca-Cola Tigers - Why? Simple. Coke is also a struggling team. Main reason why they would want to land Jimmy is to reunite him with center Asi Taulava. The two played sweet music together over at Talk n Text.
San Miguel Beermen - With Mike Cortez's ACL injury which sidelines him for about 6 months, SMB must be cooking something to get Jimmy. Among the teams also, roster wise, SMB has players to give out.
Purefoods TJ Giants - Just like SMB, Purefoods is in need of a point guard. Despite Topex Robinson's decent play, with the uncertaintly of Roger Yap's condition, PF might just find a little Giant in Jimmy. The problem is who will they give out.
Ow well, let's just wait and see. According to the news, Alapag will be a package deal meaning other TnT players will be involved. A 3-way trade (3 teams) is a big possibility.
