The TNT Katropa continued its rebuilding with still more than a month from the 2020 PBA Season opening.

The Katropa acquired young guard Ed Daquioag from the Rain or Shine Elastopainters in exchange of TNT's 2020, 2021, and 2022 second round picks. TNT' 2021 and 2022 picks were from the NorthPort Batang Pier and San Miguel Beermen.

The league approved the trade on Tuesday.

Daquioag was the latest addition for the Katropa who has been wheeling and dealing since its unexpected elimination in the Semifinals of the 2019 Governors' Cup at the hands of the Meralco Bolts.

A week ago, TNT had already sent Mike Digregorio to the Alaska Aces for Simon Enciso. They also already signed their first round pick in the 2019 PBA draft, Kib Montalbo to a one and a half year contract.

Daquioag is expected to inject young blood to TNT's wing and guard rotation that already featured veterans Jason Castro and Ryan Reyes as well as gunners RR Pogoy and Ray Parks.

Rain or Shine meanwhile freed up a slot in their roster after taking three first round picks in the recent draft. The E-painters added Adrian Wong, Clint Doliguez and big man Prince Rivero in the draft.
