MANILA—NLEX is not yet done in the trading market.
The PBA announced on Saturday the approval of a separate trade the Road Warriors swung.
In the said trade, NLEX nabbed Alex Mallari from Mahindra for Glenn Khobuntin and Eric Camson.
The league earlier approved a four-team swap that saw Larry Fonacier and JR Quiñahan heading to the Road Warriors.

However, the Mallari trade came in time for the Floodbusters' match against the Blackwater Elite on Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, which could mean Khobuntin and Camson are likely to suit up for the Floodbusters.
Mahindra and Blackwater lock horns at 4:30 p.m., right before Alaska and Ginebra collide at 6:45 p.m.
Mallari, however, will have to wait a little longer for his NLEX debut as the team's next game will be on the night after the SEABA Men's Championship on May 19 against San Miguel.
