Miranda named FEU coach
DENNIS 'Denok' Miranda has been named Far Eastern University head coach as Johnny Abarrientos takes on the role of Tamaraws team consultant.
Miranda was a member of the UAAP champion Tamaraws in 2003 and 2004 and worked as assistant coach under Olsen Racela, who was hired in 2016 but was dropped last month after FEU missed the semifinals for the first time in eight seasons.
Abarrientos also moves up from an assistant role, being installed consultant after declining the head coaching spot. The former PBA MVP is also currently an assistant coach of the Magnolia Hotshots.
Three-team trade approved
THE NLEX-Phoenix-TNT six-team trade has been approved.
Phoenix sent Jake Pascual and Sean Anthony to the Road Warriors for Justin Chua, Paul Varilla, and NLEX’s highest second-round pick in the 48th season draft.
The Fuel Masters then sent Chua and Varilla to TNT for Raul Soyud, JJ Alejandro, and the Tropang Giga’s second-round pick in the 52nd season draft.
CLINT Doliguez returns to the PBA, signing with the NLEX Road Warriors.
The No. 6 overall pick by the Elasto Painters in the 2019 draft, Doliguez played for NorthPort last season before joining Pioneer in the PBA 3x3.
Doliguez was a member of two NCAA champion San Beda teams under coach Boyet Fernandez.
NLEX earlier acquired Jake Pascual and Sean Anthony in a three-team six-player trade, and later signed Hesed Gabo of MPBL champion Nueva Ecija.
