Crucial meeting between coach Chot, Narvasa up as fate of Gilas PH roster hangs

Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes is in the middle of talks with PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa as they try to come up with a formula that would allow the country to field in its best players for the Fiba Asia Championship slated in August in Lebanon.

Their talk will be crucial as the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) will submit its 24-man pool to organizers Saturday. From that pool would come the final 12-man lineup, said team manager Butch Antonio.

Antonio also bared that there would be a lot of changes in the first 24-man pool that SBP and the PBA had come up with.

Filipino-German big man Christian Standhardinger, Kiefer Ravena and Kobe Paras are all being considered for inclusion in the pool, and that would mean that at least three from the original list will be dropped.

“The coaches are discussing (the list) and will come up with a lineup tomorrow (Saturday),” Antonio told the Inquirer.

Andray Blatche, Antonio said, would be included in the list as the former Brooklyn Net in the NBA would again be the naturalized player for Gilas 5.0.
