Baguio shipped to Phoenix at last minute



Alaska veteran Cyrus Baguio has a new home.

The swingman, a former UST Growling Tiger, has been traded to Phoenix a day before the PBA opening on Friday.

Baguio had a glorious stint with the Uytengsu franchise, winning PBA titles during the 2010 Fiesta Conference and 2013 Commissioner’s Cup.

Aside from Baguio, Alaska also let go of their lone 2017 second round pick in exchange for Phoenix’s second round picks for 2017 and 2018.

Prior to the Baguio acquisition, Phoenix also signed veterans Ronjay Buenafe from Meralco Bolts and John Wilson from NLEX.
