Kia acquired Ronald Tubid, JayR Reyes, Rashawn McCarthy, and a 2019 first round pick.Trading away a high draft pick is nothing new to Kia.In 2015, the franchise also dealt its rights to No. 2 pick, which turned out to be Troy Rosario, to Talk ’N Text in a three-team trade and got veteran swingmen Aldrech Ramos and KG Canaleta in return.The Picanto followed it up with another head-scratching move a season later when they shipped Ramos and Canaleta despite having a promising campaign.Kia recorded a woeful 6-27 slate this season, including a 0-11 card in the Governors’ Cup.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextcenter_img MOST READ ‘Excited’ Terrence Romeo out to cherish first PBA finals appearance PLAY LIST 01:30’Excited’ Terrence Romeo out to cherish first PBA finals appearance00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson New team manager Joe Lipa offered a feeble explanation on the trade during talk with the media before PBA Commissioner Chito Narvasa announced the approval, which likely triggered Revilla’s post on social media.“One man cannot spell the difference from a team winning a championship. But for us to have three to four veteran players who we believe isn’t only talented but can also contribute to the development of the younger players, we believe that we can be very competitive,” Lipa told reporters.The 27-year-old Revilla has been the team’s star since his arrival in 2014 and is entering his fourth season for the Picanto, who wasted a golden opportunity to draft a sure-fire star in Christian Standhardinger.Lipa also said the Fil-German big man, who is not the typical rookie having played professionally in Germany and with the Philippine national team, “is a great player” and “has a big potential.”Standhardinger is the consensus top choice in the coming draft on Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaIt was once again a tale of missed chances from the Kenyan champions who created chance after chance especially in the first half, but could not bury any of them.However, Dylan Kerr’s charges will leave chests high especially after performing in an exemplary fashion against a side that plays in the English second tier league and one that has history of playing in the Premier League.Kerr will pick positives and inspiration from this game as he prepares his side for their second CAF Confederation Cup Group D match against Algerian outfit USM Alger at the same venue on Wednesday night.The atmosphere was terrific with the K’Ogalo faithful roaring their team on against the Championship side while the neutrals cheered and raved on from any beautiful move from either side.Hull City’s Jarrod Bowen dribbles away from Gor Mahia’s Kevin Omondi during their friendly match on May 13, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaKerr started off a strong side with the only difference from the team that played Rayon Sport last weekend in the CAF Confederation Cup being Ephraim Guikan starting upfront alongside Jacques Tuyisenge ahead of Meddie Kagere.The home side had a half chance four minutes in, George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo trying his luck with a left foot snap shot from distance, but it went straight to keeper Marshall.Three minutes on the opposite end, Hull had a chance when a cross-ball bounced inside the box from the right falling on Frazer Campbell’s feet, but the former Tottenham Hotspur man’s effort to dribble his way into the box was stopped by a forest of legs.A sweeping team move from Gor Mahia, cheered on and appreciated by the partisan crowd handed them a decent scoring opportunity. Odhiambo swept the ball low into the edge of the box from the left into Guikan’s path, but the Ivorian’s shot was well handled by Marshall.On the other end in the 12th minute, Evandro’s freekick from the right found Jon Toral unmarked at the backpost but the lanky winger’s header at goal flew over the post with keeper Oluoch beaten.Hull City’s Kevin Stewart controls the ball ahead of Gor Mahia’s Humphrey Mieno during their friendly match on May 13, 2018.

Wendo, Odhiambo, Mieno and Guikan all made way for Samuel Onyango, Kevin Omondi, Okeyo and Kagere respectively.Wesley Onguso also later came on for Godfrey Walusimbi.Hull made a goalkeeping change, Burton coming on for David Marshall. Minutes later, Brazilian Evandro who had impressed in midfield came off for William Chadwick.The visitors had a chance of getting into the lead in the 73rd minute when Kingsley Stephen intercepted a header from Walusimbi destined back to keeper Oluoch, but the shot stopper spread his body nicely on the ground to block the effort.Chances were few and in between as it turned out to be a show-off of passing prowess. However late on, Gor had chances to score, first Kahata’s header off an Onguso long throw went inches over the bar while later Burton made a good save to punch away a shot from Kagere.0Shares0000(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia forward Ephraim Guikan attempts to go past Hull City’s Robbie Mackenzie during an international friendly match at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani in Nairobi on May 13, 2018.
