2016 PBA Offseason Grades: Mahindra Floodbuster


It was just a month ago after the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel won their first championship in eight years and the PBA already opened it's 42nd season. Let us examine how each team did in the offseason.

MAHINDRA FLOODBUSTER



Players in: Alex Mallari, Ryan Arana, Denice Villamor, Nico Salva, Josan Nimes

Players out: KG Canaleta, Aldrech Ramos, Bradwyn Guinto, Keith Agovida, Raymond Aguilar, Paolo Taha, Chito Jaime, Hyram Bagatsing, AJ Mandani, Nico Elorde

Drafted players: Joseph Eriobu, Russel Escoto, Reden Celda

GRADE: C


The Mahindra Enforcers team who had a great performance last season specially in the governors' cup when they made it to the playoffs for the first time, have totally rebuild this off season, trading and letting their key players walk in the free agency.

KG Caanaleta, Aldrech Ramos, Bradwyn Guinto, Keith Agovida and Paolo Taha are now all gone. L.A. Revilla is the only remaining key player for Mahindra's run last season.

But somehow, the Floodbuster (their new monicker this season) got young and talented players that could turn to be key players for their playoff hopes. They've got Russel Escoto and Joseph Eriobu, two big man who can score in the paint and also shoot  from the outside.

They've got also veteran players with championship experience in Alex Mallari, Nico Salva and Ryan Arana.
