TNT KaTropa has acquired shooter Mike Digregorio of Blackwater in exchange of defensive guard Brian Heruela through a trade approved by the Philippine Basketball Association on Saturday.
Digregorio, averaging 10.8 points in six games is meant to beef up TNT’s shooting capability.
The KaTropa are currently leading with an unblemished 7-0 record.
Blackwater team owner Dioceldo Sy explained his decision to trade Digregorio for Heruela.
“I need a good point guard and Mike Digregorio lacks defense.
Mac Belo and Paul Desiderio will be t he centerpiece of the Blackwater franchise,” Sy told The Manila Times. Heruela has returned to the same team that had him as 26th overall pick in the 2014 rookie draft.
