2016 PBA Offseason Grades: TNT KaTropa


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.

TNT KATROPA




Players in: Frank Golla

Players out: Dylan Ababou, Aaron Aban, Jai Reyes

Drafted players: Roger Pogoy, Levi Hernandez

GRADE: B


The TNT KaTropa will parade a new coach this season in Nash Racela, their long-time assistant head coach, as Jong Uichico was relieved in his coaching duty.

Aside from that, the TNT KaTropa didn't do much in the offseason. They've only added RR Pogoy, a Gilas 5 member and key player of coach Nash Racela in the FEU Tamaraws that won the UAAP championship last season.

Pogoy had a great college career along with fellow Tamaraws, Mac Belo, Russell Escoto, Carl Bryan Cruz and Mike Tolomia, who were all drafted in the special draft conducted for Gilas 5 members.

They've also got another scoring option in former Arellano Chief, Levi Hernandez who is also an FBA MVP. Hernadez was the last player called in the 2016 PBA draft.

The TNT KaTropa have also shipped seldomly-used Dylan Ababou to Blackwater Elite for big man Frank Golla.
