MANILA--A day before the season-ending Governors' Cup begins, Ginebra and Barako Bull pushed for a trade involving Sol Mercado and Joseph Yeo.

Mercado will now join the Gin Kings headed by new coach Frankie Lim after the trade that was approved by Commissioner Chito Salud on Monday.

Yeo, on the other hand, will try to energize an Energy side who had a good start in the Commissioner's Cup before stumbling in the end.

Mercado averaged 10.6 points, four rebounds, and five assists, while Yeo had 6.4 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game in the past conference won by Talk 'n Text.
