Phoenix open to more trades after failed PBA Govs’ Cup bid

ANTIPOLO — Phoenix has had a busy season after being involved in several trade deals.

The Fuel Masters, however, aren’t done yet in revamping their roster especially after a failed campaign in the 2017 Governors’ Cup.

“Obviously, [we have] a need for additional big man in the draft. We don’t need just one, we need two more big men. Doug (Kramer) played well today, but we don’t have any more big man yet to complement, especially in the all-Filipino,” said Phoenix head coach Ariel Vanguardia after a loss to Rain or Shine on Wednesday eliminated the Fuel Masters from playoff contention.

“Our bigs like Willie Wilson, Eriobu are small bigs. We’re looking at the draft and of course, we are open to trades. We always discuss with management whatever comes our way that’s how we rebuild.”

The Fuel Masters made several moves this season. They traded second-year playmaker Simon Enciso to Alaska for veteran guard RJ Jazul, before acquiring former national team mainstay Jeff Chan from Rain or Shine, who got Mark Borboran and a future second round pick in return.
