The team looking to sweep the titles this season finally trained with a full roster Thursday, when McKenzie Moore joined the Tropang Giga prep for the PBA Governors Cup.

TNT expects Moore to help the team build on their Philippine Cup conquest earlier this year, but coach Chot Reyes knows he shouldn’t expect too much from his reinforcement. For now.

The multi-title mentor, however, is a fan of a facet of Moore’s game that should come in handy at the end-of-season conference currently running beloved Barangay Geneva and its imported resident Justin Brownlee.

“We like his versatility, among other things,” Reyes said of the 6-foot-6 swingman, who arrived in the country last Saturday.

Moore is no longer a stranger to the TNT core of Jayson Castro, Roger Pogoy and Troy Rosario, having already dressed for the Tropang Giga at a pocket tournament in Macau.

The 29-year-old American also played alongside Mikey Williams, TNT’s rookie scoring dynamo, with the Mighty Sports-Go For Gold team from the Philippines led by Joseph Yeo that swept the Jones Cup in 2019.

Meanwhile, Magnolia, who fought TNT in that All-Filipino title matchup, traded Justin Melton and Kyle Pascual for Terrafirma’s James Laput.

The agreement was approved and made official by the league on Thursday afternoon, while the second leg of the PBA 3 × 3 tournament was played.

Coincidentally, the Dyip also made headlines on Wednesday night after his 3 × 3 was Roider Cabrera lost consciousness on the team bench.
