Myers to beef up Gilas in Jones Cup

Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes has yet to name his 2017 Jones Cup roster but he bared that TNT’s stand-in import Mike Myers has agreed to beef up the Philippine team in the invitational tournament.

“We’re pretty set with Mike and he’s already agreed,” Reyes said on Tuesday at the conclusion of the national team’s evening session at Meralco Gym.

Myers was in attendance for the second straight practice, further bolstering Reyes’ decision to pick him as the Philippines’ reinforcement in Taiwan in late July.

Reyes said TNT import Joshua Smith and Star reinforcement Ricardo Ratliffe were also on Gilas’ radar, but different reasons hampered their chances from being chosen.

“We wanted to have Joshua Smith, but his injury prevents that from happening. He needs to play nine games in nine days and we don’t know if he’ll be able to do that,” he said.” It’s the same thing with the others, but I think they’re opting to play in the NBA Summer League.”

“Guys like Ratliffe want to rest and I don’t know if we can get him because Korea is also eyeing him. But at least for the Jones Cup, he said he wants to rest first,” he added.
