Cyrus Baguio is reportedly also on the way out of Red Bull and is heading for either Air21 or Talk n Text.
According to reports, the Red Bull management has committed Baguio plus point guard Celino Cruz in a trade deal to be formalized before the league trading deadline on the last play date of the elimination round either tomorrow or Sunday.
“I would be very happy if that report is true. I will not deny that I have approached Red Bull, looking to acquire Baguio, Cruz and Larry Rodriguez,” said Air21 governor and team manager Lito Alvarez.
Red Bull governor Tony Chua denied knowledge of the trade.
However, league sources confirmed the deal, including those from the teams which had tried to work out a deal for Baguio.
The former UST mainstay soared to stardom following the departure of several prominent players from Red Bull including Rico Villanueva, Willie Miller, Lordy Tugade, Mick Pennisi, Larry Fonacier, Junthy Valenzuela and Rich Alvarez. – Nelson Beltransource
