Alaska coach Alex Compton says Calvin Abueva to Ginebra trade rumors only came from fans

Amid the trade rumor linking flamboyant forward Calvin Abueva, Alaska coach Alex Compton said they are willing to part ways with the “Beast” if they will get a talent in the mold of LeBron James or Kevin Durant.

“If somebody is offering Lebron and KD that are half-Filipino, then maybe we will talk. But it’s just not (true),” Compton said, in response to trade rumors surrounding Abueva, shortly after Alaska’s 120-117 loss to Gilas on Saturday.

The outspoken American mentor was actually surprised on the rumors as he bared even the Alaska management has no plans of pulling the trigger to let Abueva walk away.

“PBA fans are excited, fans love the game, I think they love to have Calvin so if you’re a fan and you can start that rumor. People like to have fun in different ways,” he added. – FOX Sports Asia
