There will be a new beast on the block for the TNT Tropang Giga when the next PBA conference kicks off this year.

In a trade reveal announced by the PBA on February 26, 2024, the Tropang Giga is set to land energetic big man Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser from the NLEX Road Warriors via a three-team swap.

Initially, the six-foot-six star was traded to the Blackwater Bossing franchise in exchange for Yousef Taha, Ato Ular, and a first-round pick in the Season 51 Draft.

However, the TNT management made their moves, deploying a counter-offer of sending Jaydee Tungcab, Justin Chua, and a Season 41 second-round pick to Blackwater for the services of Rosser.

Rosser slowly picked up his stride after playing for the NLEX Road Warriors and wrapped up the PBA Commissioner’s Cup with 8.4 points and 3.6 rebounds per game.

It was during the 2023 Southeast Asian Games that Rosser’s potential fully bloomed after cracking the national team lineup coached by Tim Cone.

During the international tournament, Rosser became Gilas’ main anchor in the paint and showed flashes of his versatility with his size.

At six-foot-six, Rosser kicked off several Gilas fast breaks and ignited the team in transition with his speed and agility.

Aside from his quickness at the center position, Rosser also proved that he can bang with bigger bodies in the shaded lane.

Rosser will now have the chance to pick up more knowledge with former PBA MVP Kelly Williams and multi-champion point guard Jason Castro at TNT.

He will also be forming one of the most formidable frontcourt lineups with former PHL national team center Poy Erram who is still nursing a minor injury.
