Yesterday, the Gladiators picked up Uprising Academy DPS MirroR in a trade between the two parties.

The Gladiators currently have Panker under team option, with the deadline to re-sign players under option until they become a free agent having passed on Monday. No word has been made yet regarding his status with the team.
