Grand Slam-seeking Beermen acquire Von Pessumal for AVO

The San Miguel Beermen sent Arnold Van Opstal to Globalport for Von Pessumal.
The Arnold Van Opstal experiment in San Miguel is officially over.
Eight days after winning his second PBA championship with the team, AVO is moving on from the Beermen after San Miguel traded the rookie center to Globalport in exchange of Von Pessumal.
Acquired by the Beermen in the draft as a Gilas cadet, Van Opstal barely played in San Miguel's top-heavy system although he had the pleasure to win two titles in gis first two conferences.
Pessumal, who will represent the Philippines in the Jones Cup and the SEA Games, will now join the Beermen that are going for a Grand Slam.
A streak shooter out of Ateneo, Pessumal was lost in Globalport's rotation after the Batang Pier acquired Jonathan Grey in a previous trade with the Meralco Bolts.
