Smart Gilas Pilipinas will not play in the 4-Nation Doha Tournament in Qatar due to injuries to Chris Tiu, JV Casio, Mark Barroca and the extension of the Talk N Text vs Petron PBA Finals to Game 7. 5 players from Talk N Text will reinforce Smart Gilas and they need time to rest from the grueling series vs Petron.

The five players from Talk N Text that will join Smart Gilas in the FIBA Asia Championships in September:
– Jimmy Alapag
– Kelly Williams
