"He (Coach Chot Reyes) just wants to bring me along and see how everything goes," Parks said. "I've been showing up in practice, so he just wants to keep this core group together."

"I have to wait for comment if I'll be in the exact line-up in the Jones Cup, but for sure, I'm going on the trip," he said.

Parks brings the Philippines' Jones Cup roster to 17 players, as he joins Jio Jalalon, Mike Tolomia, Kiefer Ravena, Almond Vosotros, Matthew Wright, Ed Daquioag, Von Pessumal, Roger Pogoy, Kobe Paras, Mac Belo, Kevin Ferrer, Carl Bryan Cruz, Raymar Jose, Alfonso Gotladera, Christian Standhardinger, and import Mike Myers.
