Kevin Alas will now join the Talk 'n Text Tropamg Texters just a week and a half into his PBA debut.

The NLEX Road Warriors shipped the six-foot combo guard to the Tropang Texters camp after a three-club trade also involving the Blackwater Elites was approved by Commissioner Chito Salud.

On the other hand, the Road Warriors got Nino Canaleta in the said transfer that also saw Larry Rodriguez moving to the Elites.

In the process, both Blackwater and Talk 'n Text swapped orders in the first round of the 2015 PBA Draft.

Alas was the second overall pick by the Rain Or Shine Elastopainters.

But the E-Painters traded him to the Road Warriors following the re-signing of Paul Lee.

Alas will now join NLEX draftee Matt Rosser, who joined TNT in an earlier trade.

Meanwhile, Coach Boyet Fernandez got one of the veterans in his wishlist by acquiring Canaleta.

On the other hand, Blackwater nabbed a blue-chip big man with great work ethics in Rodriguez, who is expected to play extended minutes after rookie Frank Golla was diagnosed with a heart problem.
