    Suggested reserve lists to ponder:

    1. Troy Rosario – still young although good exposure for him but we should choose player that will help to build a strong team for QQT.
    2. LA Tenorio – Had experienced and shined during FIBA World, but it seems his energy is fading and may not sustain it during QQT and Rio Olympics. With the coming of Terence Romeo and Ray Parks, its time for LA to be in reserve, considering that both Terence and Ray have all the energy and enthusiasm, which make the Gilas team more quick and exciting for the filipino audience.
    3. Ryan Reyes – His 3-points worked during Iran Tune-up, but has not yet actually proven his worth, however, he can be best substitute of Jeff Chan.
