The TNT Katropa officially acquired super rookie Ray Parks Jr from the Blackwater Elite sending Don Trollano, Anthony Semerad and a 2021 first round pick in exchange, the PBA Commissioner's office approved on Sunday.
Reports of the trade have been swirling around the basketball community since Thursday and since the league went to a break in observance of the recent holidays, the league only approved the trade papers on Sunday.
However, there was a revision on the approved trade. Initially, the Katropa were reportedly sending Trollano along the 2019 and 2021 first round picks in exchange of Parks. Following the revision, Semerad was thrown into the mix instead of the 2019 first round pick.
With the trade, Parks will be joining a championship contender team with TNT who's also in dire need of a guard to man the point epecially with Castro expected to be out for at least a month due to muscle strain injury. Parks was averaging 20 points, five rebounds and close to four assists so far in the conference.
Blackwater, meanwhile, will have two more piece to their rebuilding. It was the third trade that involved the Elite in a month span. They first sent Mike Digregorio to TNT for Brian Heruela, before acquiring KG Canaleta and Mike Tolomia from Meralco tin exchange of Allein Maliksi and Raymar Jose.
