Air21's Eric Camson is set to trade for Meralco's Rabeh Al-Hussaini in time for the PBA Playoffs


With the PBA Playoffs looming, two teams are expected to bolster their line up that would add size in their shaded lanes.




Unless negotiations won't push through, the Meralco Bolts and the Air 21 Express are expected to shake their respective rosters by way of a trade in time for the PBA Commissioner's Cup Playoffs.


Camson-Al Hussaini Trade

A source of Spin.ph revealed that Air21 is set to acquire journeyman center Rabeh Al-Hussaini from Meralco in exchange for rookie forward Eric Camson.



The trade is expected to beat the league's 12 noon trade deadline on Monday.

Meralco, needing to shore up its backcourt with the continued absence of the injured Mike Cortez, initially set its sights on Air21 rookie and former Talk 'N Text draftee Eliud Poligrates, a source said.

But with the recent resurgent of Poligrates, it seems that Air21 is keen on keeping him.

The Cebuano guard Poligrates has his best game as an Express last Monday, tallying 13 points, five rebounds and two assists in an 82-87 loss to Rain or Shine.

So the Bolts decided to eventually settled for Camson, the former Adamson Falcon who is a role player for Air21.

Camson tallied 12 points, seven rebounds and a block against the San Miguel Beermen last Wednesday on what might be his last game with the Express.

"Alin dun sa dalawa ang gusto. Pero malamang Camson 'yan," said the source.

The decision is now on Meralco, who is willing to return Al-Hussaini to the team that made him the second pick overall in the 2010 rookie draft.

The 6-7 Fil-Kuwaiti has been struggling to find his spot in the Bolts' rotation after the arrival of two-time MVP Danny Ildefonso last conference.

Al-Hussaini is averaging just seven minutes per game in the import-spiced conference.

Another source bared that if the trade fails to push through in time for Air21 and Meralco's stint in the quarterfinals, it will likely be consummated before the season-ending Governors' Cup.

The two players will be great additions to both teams if the trade pushes through.
