MANILA – Blackwater Elite acquired the services of veteran scorer Nino Canaleta in a 3-player trade on Wednesday.

Blackwater had to give up the pair of Dylan Ababou and James Forrester to get Canaleta from GlobalPort, according to the PBA website.

The league approved the trade on Wednesday.

Canaleta normed 11.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game during his stay with the Batang Pier. 

He will be a big help for the Elite, who has lost Art dela Cruz to injury. 

Blackwater has yet to win a game in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup after losing all its first three matches.
