Reyes says he was ‘asked’ to leave Maliksi out of SEAG roster

In the end, coach Chot Reyes picked Jio Jalalon as the Star representative for Gilas Pilipinas.

The outspoken mentor decided to pick Jalalon over Allein Maliksi for the 2017 Fiba Asia Cup roster but was asked to leave the lanky shooter out of the Southeast Asian Games rosters.

This despite the PBA’s Board of Governors agreeing to lend veteran players to the national team.

“We had to make a decision,” said Reyes after the team’s Thursday evening practice at Upper Deck Gym in Pasig.

“We wanted to put (Maliksi) in the Sea Games lineup, but we were asked not to put him in there first,” he added, without going into details on who he was pertaining to.

Without Maliksi in the roster, most of Gilas’ outside shooting will now be vested on guards Jayson Castro and Terrence Romeo, as well as gunners Matthew Wright and Roger Pogoy.
