KIA has made one conventional move in the offseason as it plucked wingman Dylan Ababou from the PBA free agent market.

Ababou, who turns 31 next month, will be playing for his seventh team in three years and eighth overall in a journeyman career since Barako Bull took him with the No. 10 pick in the 2011 draft.

But the former UAAP MVP out of University of Santo Tomas, who last played for Phoenix, seems poised to revive his career at Kia where he can have plenty of playing time in a shallow wing rotation led by Ronald Tubid.

The Picanto also signed two other wingmen in Jan Jamon, their fourth-round pick in last year's draft who is set to make his pro debut, and re-signed Bong Galanza.

Team manager Joe Lipa confirmed the acquisitions on Tuesday.

The Picanto have turned their sights on the free-agent market after declining to sign their picks this year in Chris de Chavez, Arvie Bringas, and Christian Geronimo.

The team came under fire in the offseason when it traded the top pick overall in the October 29 draft to San Miguel for a bunch of second-stringers and a future draft pick.

The Beermen used the pick to draft Fil-German Christian Standhardinger.
