Magnolia spitfire guard Jio Jalalon flirted with a triple-double on Sunday with 19 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists in the Hotshots’ 118-103 victory over Columbian which also ended their 3-game losing skid.

This was after rumors circulated on social media that Jalalon is on the trading block, which Magnolia team governor Rene Pardo already denied.

Pardo also said the former Arellano University standout just signed a fresh three-year contract with Magnolia.

Jalalon also said he was not in any way affected by the trade rumors swirling in the web.

“Hindi ko naman naisip ‘yun. Si Boss Gov. lang, sinabihan ako na ibawi ko siya sa linabas niyang salita. Sabi ko, ‘Sige boss.’ Hindi naman ako nag-doubt. Alam ko naman ‘yun… Nawala hardwork ko, binalik lang. Kung ano ‘yung ginagawa ko dati, binalik ko lang. Parang nag-tanim uli ako. Sana magtuluy-tuloy ito.”
