Although the spot of Marcus Douthit in the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup may be taken from him by Andray Blatche, Douthit expressed his Full Support for the Naturalization of Andray Blatche and even attended the hearing in Congress last week with Gilas Pilipinas Coach Chot Reyes and Congressman Yeng Guiao.
House Bill 3783 and 3784 was filed by Antipolo City Congressman Robbie Puno that will help give citizenship to Andray Blatche of the Brooklyn Nets and JaVale McGee of the Denver Nuggets, the same resolution was filed to make Marcus Douthit a Filipino citizen.
After the approval of their citizenship, McGee and Blatche may join the Gilas Pilipinas pool but per FIBA rules, only 1 naturalized player may play per FIBA tournament.
