A week after their former coach, Yeng Guiao announces that the he will leave the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters team to coach the NLEX Road Warriors, another change has come for the Elasto Painters as J.R. Quiñahan has been traded to the Batang Pier for Jay Washington.
Quiñahan has been part of the Elasto Painters team since the 2011-2012 season and won two championships with the team in 2012 Governors’ Cup and 2016 Commissioner’s Cup.
The 2x PBA All Star averaged 11.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists in just 22.3 minutes of action per game in the 2015-2016 season. He will fill the lack of inside presence of the Batang Pier team.
