Fil-Italian point guard Chris Banchero is now practicing with the Magnolia Hotshots on Monday.
The trade papers sent to the Commissioner’s office got its approval yesterday.
The Hotshots packaged Rodney Brondial and Rob Herndon to acquire the high-IQ guard.
Yesterday, during Alaska’s match versus the NorthPort Batang Pier, Banchero was not present on their bench. According to reports, prior to the approval of the trade, the former ABL Finals MVP already said goodbye to his Aces teammates.
Magnolia fans have two days more to wait and see Banchero wearing the Magnolia uniform as they play versus the Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters.
With the arrival of Banchero to the Hotshots, he will add to the already deep guard rotation of coach Chito Victolero.
