The Bossing are looking to reacquire guard Mike DiGregorio, while sending Barkley Ebona to the FiberXers.
Trade papers will be sent to the PBA on the first day of office for the year, according to sources.
DiGregorio played for Blackwater from 2017 to 2019 before being traded to TNT where he played one conference, then was moved to Alaska.
Ebona was drafted fourth overall in 2019 by Alaska before being sent to Blackwater in a trade in 2021. The Alaska franchise was sold to Converge in 2022.
