Star Hotshots and Global Port consummated a trade within the same day of the draft that would swap Lervin Flores and Robert Herndon and other rookies.

Robert Herndon, an offensive guy could be playing for Star Hotshots in the upcoming season of the PBA. The Hotshots did not perform as expected in the recent conference especially after letting go of streaky shooter Allein Maliksi to Blackwater.  Herndon could be a good replacement at guard/forward position.

Global Port on the other hand maybe looking to bulk up front court and Lervin Flores would be able to provide that muscle to support the dynamic duo of Stanley Pringle and Terrence Romeo.
The trade proposal is yet to be approved but it is expected to get a nod from the commissioner anytime soon.

Blake Griffin of the Philippines? Can Lervin Flores Dunk his way to the PBA?

A young 6’5 basketball player from Pampanga have already captured the imagination of some basketball fans. Lervin Flores a standout from Arellano University has been making waves for his high-flying ability and has been one of the highly touted players that may see action in the PBA soon.
While he certainly got the leaping ability and the physicality to show, he is fairly undersized for his position, especially in the big league.
Tagged as the Blake Griffin of the Philippines, he brings the hammer in every position as he tries to nail the ball down hard in every possession.

Without a doubt, he may be one of the top local prospects but his game still needs a lot of flourishing as dunking may not always be an available option for you especially in front of much bigger guys in the pro league.  Flores is still young and needs to diversify his offensive arsenal to be truly called the Blake Griffin of the Philippines. Shooting from the outside will greatly improve his chances to be a star in the PBA.
