Dorian Peña is set to further beef up the Ginebra frontline as he will join the team from Barako Bull as a three-team trade with San Miguel was approved by Commissioner Chito Salud.

In exchange, the Beermen acquired Jay-R Reyes from the Gin Kings. In turn, the Beermen sent Justin Chua to the Energy.

Peña, returning from an injury, will join Greg Slaughter and Japeth Aguilar at Ginebra.

Reyes, on the other hand, will team up with Junemar Fajardo and Doug Kramer at San Miguel.

Chua will be a welcome addition to the young big man core of Barako Bull with Jake Pascual, Papot Paredes, and Dave Marcelo.

Ginebra also got the 2015 second round pick of Barako Bull, which took San Miguel's 2017 first round pick.
