Trade Never Stops as PBA teams have been making one trade after another and this next one is another shocker.


The 35-year-old former 2004 number four overall pick of FedEx Express will be playing for his 3rd team. Ranidel De Ocampo spent his first four years with FedEx Express before being traded to TNT where he found success and played for 9 years.

Below are some of his achievements while playing for TNT franchise.

Ranidel De Ocampo's Achievements:

6× PBA champion (2008–09 Philippine, 2010–11 Philippine, 2011 Commissioner's, 2011–12 Philippine, 2012–13 Philippine, 2015 Commissioner's)
2× PBA Finals MVP (2012–13 Philippine, 2015 Commissioner's)
PBA Best Player of the Conference (2014 Governors')
9× PBA All-Star (2007–2011, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017)
3× PBA Mythical First Team (2012–2014)
PBA Mythical Second Team (2015)
PBA All-Rookie Team (2004–05)

Now in his 13th season as a PBA player, De Ocampo will see himself playing for his 3rd team after being traded twice in one day.

As reported on PBA.ph,  Talk n Text traded Ranidel De Ocampo to Phoenix fuel Masters for Norbert Torres and a first round pick but that is not the end of the story for De Ocampo as Phoenix FuelMasters traded him again to Meralco Bolts for Justin Chua and a first round pick in the coming PBA draft.

Ranidel De Ocampo ended up landing with a team under the same owner as TNT so it probably won't be that difficult for him to make adjustments. The movements that have been happening in the PBA are moves in preparation for next season.




Why did TNT Trade Ranidel De Ocampo?

For Future Draft Picks
They Believe that Norbert Torres is better at this stage of their career
To save money
RDO is past his prime
There were problems internally
RDO is old
TNT wants young players
Management has different direction
They are targeting a rookie
What am I

Barangay Ginebra celebrated a back to back Governors Cup Title and the principals were in the mood for giving

Just what you can do or buy with the bonuses given to the players?
Last week, Ginebra captured their first back to back Governors Cup Championship. A few days ago,  they celebrated with the fans and today, Ginebra players are either buying a new car, a vacation house or enjoying their hard earned bonus money. 
But just how much money did the players actually get?

According to a good friend and a Ginebra insider, each players were given different amounts of bonuses depending on their salaries and performances during the finals. So, you can safely say that Justin Brownlee and LA Tenorio are the most fortunate. The rest of the players, however, seems very happy as well with what they got. The big boss of SMC is looking to make an impression to the players to keep them motivated or in Ginebra term "Ganado".

We were told that the equivalent amount could be 10x more their…
