PBA agrees to release Gilas Pilipinas pool players for FIBA Asia Cup

All the PBA teams have agreed to release Gilas Pilipinas pool players for the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup to be held in Beirut, Lebanon from August 8-20.

From the Gilas Pilipinas 24-man Player Pool for FIBA Asia Cup announced by Gilas Coach Chot Reyes, 19 players are from the PBA. The five players that are not in the PBA are Kobe Paras, Bobby Ray Parks, Kiefer Ravena, Christian Standhardinger and Andray Blatche.

Since only 1 naturalized player can play in the FIBA Asia Cup, Coach Chot Reyes will choose either Andray Blatche or Christian Standhardinger.

The PBA also moved the opening of the next season to December to pave way for the FIBA World Cup Asia Qualifiers this November.

Thank you PBA!

Who do you think should be in the Gilas Final 12 for the FIBA Asia Cup?
