MANILA, Philippines – The San Miguel Beermen have acquired young big man Justin Chua from the GlobalPort Batang Pier in exchange for Yousef Taha.

The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) announced on Tuesday afternoon that the trade had been approved.

Chua was the 10th overall pick in the 2013 PBA Rookie Draft by the San Mig Super Coffee Mixers, but was sent to the Batang Pier just two days later.

Taha, meanwhile, was the 11th overall pick in the 2012 rookie draft by Air21. In just two years, he has already suited up for the Express, Ginebra, GlobalPort and San Miguel.
