MANILA--Just as the FIBA OQT came to a close, Phoenix's massive rebuild restarted.

The Fuel Masters once again entered the trade market on Tuesday, taking Ronjay Buenafe from the Meralco Bolts for Jonathan Uyloan. The swap was approved by Commissioner Chito Narvasa

Buenafe, who teamed up with younger cousin Ryan at Meralco but played sparingly earlier in the season, may get a career revival at the Phoenix camp especially with swingman JC Intal out due to an injury.

Uyloan, on the other hand, left the Fuel Masters without any single second played for them for the Bolts, becoming the fifth point guard in a loaded rotation featuring Baser Amer, Jimmy Alapag, Anjo Caram, and Simon Atkins.
