Vanguardia reunited with McCarthy
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.
It was a huge move for coach Ariel Vanguardia and the Bossing after Enciso led Blackwater's offense in the Philippine Cup with 13.7 points average in 34.6 minutes per game.
The Fil-Am guard was acquired from TnT as part of the three-team trade that enabled the Tropang Giga to get the NLEX draft pick to be used to select Mikey Williams.
McCarthy played under Vanguardia with the Westports Malaysia Dragons in the Asean Basketball League.

“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.
