NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao cleared the air on Wednesday involving Poy Erram's trade saying that the alleged feud between him and his center was not true, more so the reason behind the trade.
"Siguro just to set the record straight wala kaming pinagawayan ni Poy you can ask him, if he's happy here or he's not," said Guiao after their tune up game against the Alaska Aces at the Upper Deck Gym.
Rumors that there was a rift in the relationship between the two had been circulating through the social media, and was even cited as the reason why the two will be parting ways.
Guiao dismissed the rumors saying that he's happy with Erram around for the Road Warriors and he thinks the feeling was mutual for the former Ateneo standout.
"We are happy with him I think he's happy with us so that's not the reason for the trade," he added.
In fact, Erram had been dilligently attending NLEX practices and even showed in their tune up game against the Aces despite the pending trade.
"Of course we consider him as part of the team until may final na dun sa trade ut we're just trying to relish our last few days together," commented Guiao who didn't field Erram in their 108-90 victory over Alaska.
"Siya talagang nag pupunta siya sa practice talagang gusto niya pa rin talaga makasama yung mga teammates nya even though he knows there's a pending development but he comes to practice and he didn't miss anything even itong game di niya alam kung maglalaro siya o hindi dumating pa rin siya This morning we have an 8 to 10 practice nandun pa rin sya," Guiao added.
The outspoken mentor however refused to comment about the impending trade although on previous reports he said that if it's him to decide, he won't be trading Erram away. Guiao also hinted that the trade talks was not something 'at his level'.
"Wala ako masabi diyan kasi ako ayoko i-trade si Poy so wala akong masabi. I think it's not at my level so I cannot comment on it at this point," said Guiao.
