MPBL teams will get an additional week to pursue more offers on the trading table.
The Commissioner’s Office, in a meeting with the team owners on Saturday at the Makati Shangrila Hotel, confirmed to FOX Sports Philippines that they’ve agreed to open up a one week window for teams which are willing to enter trade negotiations.
MPBL Commissioner Kenneth Duremdes said the trading period starts effective immediately and will close next Sunday, November 18.
“There were several teams which asked for this, so we decided to open up a one week trading period to allow these teams to improve their line ups,” added Duremdes.
This developed as Commissioner Duremdes also ordered the rematch of the game between Mandaluyong and Quezon City without Ronjay Buenafe, nullifying the result of Thursday’s outcome.
The order came after the league decided to exclude Buenafe from the El Tigre’s lineup for the duration of the MPBL Datu Cup.
