Newcomers NLEX and Blackwater made roster tweaks before they begin their maiden PBA journey as they and Meralco struck a four-player trade deal that was approved by Commssioner Chito Salud.

The Road Warriors acquired rookie Juneric Baloria and the Elites' 2016 and 2017 second round picks.

The Elites then got veterans Sunday Salvacion and Jason Ballesteros from the Bolts, who consequently took Sean Anthony, whose contract with Air21 was absorbed by NLEX after the latter bought the franchise.

Anthony averaged 8.6 points and five rebounds per game last season while playing for Talk 'n Text and Air21.

Salvacion, who had a career spike with Ginebra, averaged five points and 1.4 rebounds per game with the Bolts last season.

Baloria, a third round pick by the Elites this year, currently averages 21.3 points per game with the Perpetual Help Altas in the NCAA.
