Phoenix sends Simon Enciso to Alaska for RJ Jazul

Veteran backup guard RJ Jazul parted ways with Alaska after being traded to Phoenix in exchange for vastly improved playmaker Simon Enciso on Saturday.

Reliable sources confirmed the deal as the entry of Enciso ensures the Aces of a dynamic point guard, who could easily add youth and explosiveness to their backcourt following a disappointing quarterfinal defeat to Barangay Ginebra over a week ago in the PBA Philippine Cup.

The same source said the trade papers will be forwarded to the Commissioner’s Office soon.

Enciso has seen his game rise under coach Ariel Vanguardia at Phoenix, developing the confidence to shoot from long range, along with his ability to slash his way the basket. – FOX Sports Asia
