CARMONA--After nearly two weeks of speculations, the trade that would send Poy Erram to TNT finally got the approval from the PBA Trade Committee.

On Friday, the league announced that Erram is now a KaTropa after the latest revision to the trade proposal with the NLEX Road Warriors and the Blackwater Elite was finally given the go signal to push through.

In the approved deal, Erram will be solely going to TNT, which added Yousef Taha to the players that will be sent to Blackwater aside from Marion Magat and Ed Daquioag.

On the other hand, NLEX, Erram's former club, also got Rabeh Al-Hussaini from Blackwater aside from Anthony Semerad.

Meanwhile, the Road Warriors got the Elite's 2020 first round and 2021 second round picks, while the Elite acquired the KaTropa's 2021 and 2022 first round picks.
