Another day, another trade.

Barely 24 hours after being ejected against Phoenix, big man Kelly Nabong has been shipped to the defending champions San Miguel Beermen for Gabby Espinas and a 2020 second-round pick.

Nabong brings hustle and toughness that complement the Beermen's style of play as they head down a crucial stretch of the PBA Commissioner's Cup playoff race.

Meanwhile, Espinas, in his second stint with the team, will be bringing veteran leadership and low-post scoring for the Pido Jarencio-mentored squad.

The trade was consummated and announced by the PBA Thursday morning, bringing another conversation starter for sports fans this lunchtime.
