Jordan Clarkson eligible for Gilas Pilipinas?

Jordan Clarkson and Manny V Pangilinan

According to SBP, Fil-Am Jordan Clarkson got his Philippine Passport at age 12, this means that he was already got his citizenship before he turned 16, one of the requirements in order to play in FIBA Tournaments for Filipinos not born in the Philippines.

But the eligibility of Jordan Clarkson will still go through a process with FIBA according to SBP and until FIBA states that Jordan Clarkson can play for Philippines, we can just hope and pray for the best.

Jordan Clarkson is the new endorser of Smart Communications and will arrive today and is scheduled to conduct basketball clinics and also attend Gilas Pilipinas practices as an “observer”.

Another question is will the Los Angeles Lakers allow Jordan Clarkson to play for Gilas Pilipinas?

    I think its high time that Jordan Clarkson should be recognized by FIBA, its a long wait since he intended to play for the Filipino flag, if that happened, it will be first time in history that a legit NBA and considered local player will be playing for Gilas. We hope that this will happened soon, so that Jordan can play in Fiba World qualifier which will start on November, we can just imagine if we have Jordan plus Blatch or smith or standhardinger, olus locals Terence, castro, Fajardo, Aguilar, almazan, norwood, kiefer, carl bryan, Ray Parks, Mathew Wright, Troy Rosario, and calvin abueva – a formidable world class Team.
