The Painters also traded longtime gunner Jeff Chan to Phoenix on Monday for Mark Borboran and a 2020 second round draft pick.

This is the second time Gilas cadets have switched places after Von Pessumal went to San Miguel while Arnold Van Opstal moved to GlobalPort last month.

PBA teams agreed all cadets can be traded for one another except for Mac Belo, the supposed top pick of last year's Special Draft for national team players.

Rookie combo guard Daquioag, 25, normed 5.7 points, 1.2 assists, and 1.8 rebounds for Meralco in the eliminations during his first two conferences this season.

The 24-year-old Tolomia, on the other hand, averaged 4.0 points, 1.2 assists, and 1.3 rebounds for Rain or Shine. He will see action in the Southeast Asian Games later this month. – Rappler.com
