It's almost the end of eliminations but teams are still determined in reshaping their rosters in preparation for a tight battle for the all Filipino Cup finals. Talk n Text, a team that certainly needs a reliable inside operator lets go with Don Carlos Allado for Ranidel de Ocampo. Ranidel will be reunited with his brother Yancy. TnT also gave their first-round pick in 2012 to the Express. Don Allado originally drafted by Alaska is now with Air21.
Here are their conference stats:
36.94 mpg | 13.94 ppg, 9.94 rpg | 3.94 apg and 36.0708OPE
23.94 mpg | 5.25ppg | 6.12rpg | 19.6648OPE
This move is definitely in favor of Talk n Text, which makes me wonder why the Express agreed to such one-sided deal. Pound for pound, Ranidel is way better than Don Allado in all aspect of the game. What's more mind buggling is that Air21 actually lacks big players to man the 4 and 5 spots. They only have JR Quinahan and Homer Se. Let's see how this trade works out for both teams.
