    JUST over a week after a coaching change, Blackwater made a trade in a bold step in its bid to rise from the PBA cellar.

    Simon Enciso, after only one conference with the Bossing, has been moved.

    The Bossing, which owns the longest losing streak in the league at 19 after an 11-game winless run in the Philippine Cup, sent Enciso to Terrafirma for Rashawn McCarthy.

    THE Games and Amusements Board (GAB) said the person who has linked San Miguel Beer 3x3 player Daniel de Guzman to betting on PBA games will appear before officials for his side on the issue.

    De Guzman, a no-show in a meeting set by the GAB last week, will still have a chance to air his side, according to GAB chairman Baham Mitra.

    “Meron pa pong admin proceedings ang legal division. He will also be given a chance to speak up. Ang problema, ‘yung nagsusumbong, ‘yung nag-post ay papunta na rin sa GAB. Ayokong unahan pero delikado ang sitwasyon,” said Mitra on Tuesday during the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum.
