Converge trades Yousef Taha to Blackwater for Kurt Lojera


Blackwater added more ceiling at the expense of fresher talent.

The Bossing traded Kurt Lojera to Converge in exchange for Yousef Taha in a straight-up swap, the PBA announced via social media Saturday.

Quite surprising was the move, considering that the team used its no. 9 pick to take the two-way guard out of La Salle in the Season 47 Draft last Sunday.

Furthermore, head coach Ariel Vanguardia expressed excitement with Lojera on board, citing how practices could be more competitive as he vies for a spot.

But now, the Fil-Am cager is set be part of the FiberXers, forming as well a reunion with fellow Green Archers Tyrus Hill and Kameron Vales.

The trio are being managed by sports agency Argus Ossa.

Meanwhile, Taha brings more size to a Blackwater frontline that already has 6-foot-8 forward Brandon Rosser, the top pick of the recent draft.

The 6-foot-8 center appeared for a total of 16 games for Alaska in the 2021-22 season and averaged 8.1 points and 6.4 rebounds in 23.2 minutes.

By being a Bossing, Taha, who’s entering his 10th season in the league, will once again play with fellow ex-Aces Jvee Casio and Barkley Ebona.
