MANILA--While the PBA-powered Gilas Pilipinas is doing some FIBA Asia Championship work, three teams made movements involving their non-Gilas players.

Barako Bull, Rain Or Shine, and San Miguel consummated a trade that was approved by Commissioner Chito Narvasa on Thursday.

In the deal, the Elasto Painters sent Ryan Arana to the Beermen, who in turn shipped Ronald Pascual to the Energy, who gave up their 2016 second round choice to the Elasto Painters.

The hardworking Arana will now join an already guard-loaded San Miguel lineup, while the high-flying Pascual will further stack up the wing rotation of Barako Bull led by Gilas 1 standout Dylan Ababou and Gilas 3 player J.C. Intal.
