Draft day trade: Hotshots get hot shooting Herndon, ships Flores, Gabayni, Sargent to Globalport


Star Hotshots wanted a shooter badly to fill the void left by James Yap and they got it in a draft day trade.

Star Hotshots gave away Lervin Flores, Joseph Gabayni, and Julian Sargent for Globalport Batang Pier’s Robbie Herndon.

The Office of the Commissioner approved this trade only a few hours after the 2017 PBA Draft.

Herndon was taken 6th overall by Globalport while Flores, Gabayni, and Sargent were picked 9th, 14th, and 16th overall by Star Hotshots respectively during the draft.
