PBA Board to back Narvasa on controversial SMB-Kia trade

The ball is now on the commissioner’s court.

The PBA Board of Governors agreed to back commissioner Chito Narvasa on whatever his decision will be regarding the controversial trade involving Kia’s number one pick in the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft and San Miguel.

“The Board has agreed that it will have an all-out support to the commissioner on whatever decision he comes up in the following days,” said PBA media bureau chief Willie Marcial on Thursday after the weekly board meeting in Libis.

Narvasa has yet to come up with the decision following the reported deal, but the Board has decided to entrust all of their interest on the league executive’s hand.

Kia is reportedly shipping the top overall pick in this year’s draft, which is projected to be Fil-German forward Christian Standhardinger, to San Miguel in exchange for a combination of players, namely Ronald Tubid, JayR Reyes, Yancy de Ocampo, Matt Ganuelas-Rosser, Rashawn McCarthy, and Keith Agovida, which will be packaged with a future first rounder and cash considerations.
