Phoenix is not done acquiring backcourt help.
After trading for Brian Heruela, the Fuel Masters are adding Sol Mercado to the fold in trade with Norhtport.
In Phoenix's deal with the Batang Pier, Northport getting Mercado for LA Revilla and Rey Guevarra.
The trade was made official by the PBA Monday.
It makes sense for Phoenix to keep stacking up point guards, the position was a weakness for the team last season.
Mercado lasted less than two conferences for the Batang Pier after getting traded from Ginebra in the package deal that also included Stanley Pringle.
Meanwile, Revilla was a revelation for Phoenix last season but missed the entire Governors' Cup due to surgery to remove bone spurs.
