PBA DRAFT: NLEX gets fourth pick in trade with Phoenix
In a trade, NLEX has acquired the no. 4 overall pick from Phoenix for Alex Mallari, Dave Marcelo, and the 2019 second round pick of the Fuel Masters.

There's already action in the 2018 PBA Draft and the actual annual procedure is still a couple of days away.

In a trade, NLEX has acquired the no. 4 overall pick from Phoenix for Alex Mallari, Dave Marcelo, and the 2019 second round pick of the Fuel Masters.

The initial development was posted by NLEX on its Twitter page and the specifics were first reported by PBA Press Corps President Gerry Ramos of Spin.

As such, the Road Warriors now have two first round picks as they also own the 7th overall pick.

Meanwhile, Phoenix still has one first round selection. The Fuel Masters have the final say in the opening round as they will pick 12th, taking over Ginebra's spot thanks to the Jeff Chan trade earlier this season.
