One final appeal for Andray Blatche

Marcus Douthit and Andray Blatche

According to reports, the Incheon Asian Games Organizing Committee or IAGOC will still not allow Andray Blatche to play in the 2014 Asian Games even with the help of FIBA.

The IAGOC will strictly enforce the OCA (Olympic Council of Asia) rule stating that naturalized players should have at least 3 years residency.

THE Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) will make a final appeal this week as they have a meeting in Incheon with the organizers. If the appeal is not successful, SBP will make a request for Marcus Douthit to replace Blatche in the line-up.
