Finally, Japeth Aguilar is now a Gin King.
PBA Commissioner Chito Salud has approved a trade this June 11, 2013 which will send Globalport Batang Pier forward to Barangay Ginebra for Yousif Taha and a 2013 draft pick.
The trade did not end there. Batang Pier also got forward Jay Washington from Petron Blaze Boosters in exchange for shooting big man Jason Deutchman while the Gin Kings will send Elmer Espiritu to Barako Bull Energy Colas for a draft pick.
So in summary, this is how the multi-team trade looks like:
- Ginebra: Japeth Aguilar, Draft pick
- Globalport: Yousef Taha, Jay Washington, Draft pick
- Petron: Jason Deutchman, 2 Draft picks
- Barako Bull: Elmer Espiritu
Who wins the trade? Clearly, Globalport for getting the best player of the trade in Washington, plus two others.
