Just hours after signing a one-year deal with Converge, Robbie Herndon was immediately dealt to San Miguel for two future second-round picks.
The PBA on Monday approved the trade which sent the 28-year old Fil-Am to the Beermen for the team’s second-round picks in 2023 and 2024.
It was a sign-and-trade move executed by the FiberXers who just last week placed the 6th overall pick of the 2017 draft on the trading block.
The league’s winningest franchise only came into the picture after the two parties agreed to a contract.
Herndon was among the three former Alaska players who remained unsigned after the league opened its 47th season at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last Sunday, the others are Maverick Ahanmisi and Abu Tratter.
The arrival of Herndon gives the Beermen additional firepower especially with Terrence Romeo expected to miss some games due to back spasm.
Following his acquisition and the signing of free agents Jeepy Faundo and Mike Canete, the Leo Austria-mentored squad now has a complete 15-man roster.
