A trade proposal between the NLEX Road Warriors and NorthPort Batang Pier has been sent to the PBA Office on Sunday as both teams attempt to bolster their respective campaigns in the 2023-24 PBA Commissioner’s Cup and future conferences.
In this proposed transaction, NLEX intends to send Don Trollano, Ben Adamos, Kris Rosales, and a PBA Season 49 Draft second-round pick to NorthPort in exchange for Robert Bolick and Kent Salado.
Don Trollano, who arrived in NLEX after a trade with Blackwater in January 2022, has been a valuable asset to the team.
Ben Adamos, acquired from Phoenix Super LPG through a trade in May, and Kris Rosales, who joined NLEX as a free agent in November 2021, have also made notable contributions during their time with the Road Warriors.
Expressing his gratitude, NLEX Road Warriors’ team governor Ronald Dulatre stated, “We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to Don, Ben, and Kris for their dedication and hard work with the NLEX Road Warriors. Each of them has played a crucial role in our team’s journey, and we wish them continued success, both on and off the court. This proposed trade provides them with an excellent opportunity to showcase their talents with another team, and we genuinely appreciate their contributions to the NLEX Road Warriors.”
The proposed trade comes in the wake of the unfortunate ACL injury to Kevin Alas, leaving a void in scoring and leadership within the team.
Dulatre acknowledged this, saying, “In light of Kevin Alas’s unfortunate injury, we recognize the pressing need to fill the void left by his scoring and leadership. Robert Bolick is a remarkable player, and we believe his skills and experience will significantly contribute to the NLEX Road Warriors. We are excited about the prospect of having him on our roster and look forward to the positive impact he can make for the team.”The proposed trade is now pending approval from the PBA, and further details will be communicated once the transaction is finalized.
