Rumors about Malonzo going to Ginebra have been circulating after he was seen working out with injured Ginebra guard Jeremiah Gray in the SMC training facility.

The transfer could soon materialize pending the green light of the league, sources confirmed to Manila Bulletin.

Under the deal, Ginebra will be shipping Arvin Tolentino, Prince Caperal and Kent Salado and two future second round picks to NorthPort in exchange for the Fil-American athletic forward.

NorthPort will then send the two future picks to the Beermen for shooter Von Pessumal who will be dealt to Ginebra for Jeff Chan.

Should the push through, the Batang Pier will end up with four welcome additions in Tolentino, Caperal, Salado and Chan to join key players Robert Bolick and Arwind Santos while he Gin Kings will have Pessumal and Malonzo to join an already potent crew that has reigning MVP Scottie Thompson, Japeth Aguilar, Christian Standhardinger, Stanley Pringle and LA Tenorio.
