Mike Myers set to beef up Jones Cup-bound Gilas squad

If things work in Gilas Pilipinas’ favor, Mike Myers will reinforce the national team which will see action in the 2017 William Jones Cup in Taiwan.

Coach Chot Reyes shared the team’s plans as Gilas will use the invitational tournament, slated on late July, as the squad’s buildup for the 2017 Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in August.

“If things materialize, we’re thinking of bringing him with us in the Jones Cup,” he said.

Myers is currently TNT’s stand-in import, the KaTropa’s insurance in case Joshua Smith’s foot injury worsens through the course of the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals.

Reyes shared that Myers’ performance in the Thursday evening practice at Meralco Gym earned him a positive feedback from the national team’s coaching staff, putting him in the list as one of the possible naturalization prospects in the future.

But he made it clear that the priority is to find an import for the Gilas squad in the Jones Cup.
