MANILA - Veteran point guard Chris Banchero was not around for Alaska's game against NorthPort in the 2019 PBA Governors' Cup, Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.

Banchero is at the center of trade rumors, with the point guard allegedly headed to the Magnolia Hotshots.

The two players that Alaska was supposed to get in exchange for Banchero, Robbie Herndon and Rodney Brondial, were also absent.

The PBA has yet to approve the trade, however.

Alaska (2-6) is trying to keep its playoff hopes alive against Batang Pier (3-4).
