Blackwater set to acquire Allein Maliksi in four-player trade with Star



Just one week after landing Chris Ellis and Dave Marcelo from Brgy. Ginebra in exchange for Art dela Cruz and Raymond Aguilar, the Blackwater Elite are back on the trading table, this time with the King’s Manila Clasico rival Star Hotshots.

The Hotshots, according to a reliable source, have placed the sweet-shooting Maliksi on the trading block and Blackwater owner Dioceldo Sy wasted no time in securing the 29-year old forward out of UST.

“Interesado talaga ako kay Maliksi so when he was offered to us, hindi na kami nagdalawang isip,” Sy said in an interview with InterAksyon.

Along with Maliksi, the Elite are set to receive big man Chris Javier while the Hotshots will welcome to their line-up guard BamBam Gamalinda and center Kyle Pascual.

Trade papers have already been sent to the Commissioner’s Office for approval. – Mae Villarin
