MANILA--Aljun Melecio is set for a reunion with Coach Aldin Ayo after he was traded to Converge.

The PBA approved on Friday the swap sending Melecio and Kris Porter to the FiberXers from the Phoenix Fuel Masters.

Phoenix acquired Ben Adamos and Kurt Lojera in the process.

Melecio and Ayo were together at La Salle in 2016, winning the UAAP men's basketball title interestingly enough at the expense of Ateneo, then featuring Porter.

On the other hand, the Fuel Masters got Adamos to shore up their frontline following the loss of Jason Perkins.

The bruiser underwent knee surgery that would sideline him for the rest of the season, leaving the team with Sean Anthony and Larry Muyang to lead the bigs.
