PBA: Bolts get Salvacion, Sharma from Barako for Ballesteros
In a move to shore up their frontline, the Meralco Bolts made a trade with the Barako Bull, sending the Energy project center Jason Ballesteros, while taking back Sunday Salvacion and Carlos Sharma.
The 6'7" Ballesteros, who was selected seventh over-all at the 2011 PBA Draft, played limited minutes with the Bolts, averaging 1.33 points, 2.33 rebounds, and 0.33 blocks in 8.33 minutes in three games played.
In trading away Ballesteros, Meralco got 6'6" center Carlo Sharma who averaged 2.67 points, 1.5 rebounds in 8.17 minutes in six games played with Barako. Sharma once posted a high of 8.88 points and 4.51 rebounds in 41 games in the 2008-2009 season when the franchise was still named Red Bull.
The Bolts also got 6'3" small forward Sunday Salvacion. The nine-year veteran posted an average of 3.4 points, 0.4 rebounds, 0.2 assists in 11.4 minutes in the five games he played with Barako. It has been a steady decline in numbers for Salvacion, who once averaged a high of 10.63 points and five rebounds with the Barangay Ginebra Kings in the 2006-2007 season. - KBK, GMA News
