Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 14) — The Rain or Shine Elasto Painters have parted ways with Raymond Almazan.

The PBA approved the deal Tuesday, according to its website.

The Elasto Painters will send Almazan to Meralco in exchange for the Bolts' first round picks in the 2019 and 2021 Draft.

The 29-year-old Orion, Bataan native was selected third overall by Rain or Shine in the 2013 Draft. He won one title and earned two PBA All-Star selections with the franchise.

Almazan suited up for only six games for the Elasto Painters in this year's Philippine Cup, where he averaged eight points and six rebounds.
