Akhuetie was confirmed to be one of two reinforcements for the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas squad that will see action in the club tournament, as both Andray Blatche and Christian Standhardinger are not available for the competition scheduled on September 22-30 in Chenzhou.

Also set to join the team is former Baylor University center Isaiah Austin, who may just be the newest candidate for naturalization for the Philippines.

"I know most of these guys, and I know we're going to do good. It's a good feeling for me," said Akhuetie, who is currently serving his residency year for the University of the Philippines.
