MANILA--PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa gave the go-signal for NLEX and Phoenix to push through with their four-player trade.
In the deal approved on Tuesday, Mac Baracael and Emman Monfort will join the Road Warriors in exchange for new Fuel Masters Simon Enciso and Mark Borboran.
Also included in the deal is NLEX's acquisition of one of Phoenix's four 2018 second round picks.
Baracael and Monfort, who found their careers back on track at the Fuel Masters camp, will now try to help the Road Warriors get a deep playoff run in the season-ending Governors' Cup beginning July.
On the other hand, Enciso, who has slowly become one of the bright spots among the rookies this season, will try to continue his maiden PBA journey with Phoenix.
