BARANGAY Ginebra’s early exit in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup has triggered changes in the coaching staff, as expected, with Frankie Lim taking over from Ato Agustin.
But what’s stunning are trade rumors that, according to a reliable source, could involve national team point guard LA Tenorio.
Despite a high-profile roster, the underachieving Gin Kings bombed out of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Saturday following a heartbreaking 92-91 loss to Rain or Shine in the quarterfinals.
