Renren Bound for Meralco?

Renren Ritualo
According to GMANews.TV, another player who is reportedly on the trading block is Ren-Ren Ritualo. The deadly gunner appears headed to play for the Meralco Bolts in the second conference.

"We want to be fair to Ren-Ren and we believe that he might get it with Meralco, one of the teams we’re talking with right now," said Bo Perasol, Powerade Tigers' Coach.

A source who is also privy on the discussion said Meralco has expressed interest in getting the 6-foot-1 guard from La Salle. If Ritualo ends up with the Bolts, he will be reunited with his long-time teammate and buddy Mac Cardona.

"Meralco's coaching staff felt the team needs to consider a deadly sniper, and Ren-Ren fits that job description, that's why they are exploring all options," said the source, who requested anonymity. "But they need to come up with a deal that the Commissioner will approve."

Powerade was rumored to be eying Ogie Menor in exchange. The former San Beda Lion has not really blossomed as a PBA player, but could get a new opportunity at the Tigers roster.

Ritualo, on the other hand, is epected to complement the game of either Macmac Cardona or Sol Mercado. Cardona and Mercado are both no-conscience gunners apparently armed with take-it-anywhere-you-like licenses. Ritualo could have better and longer looks at the basket with the defense sagging on those two spitfire guards.

Likewise, the trade greatly enhanced the championship possibilities for Ritualo, a situation that has grown increasingly stale with each passing moment with his former ball club.
