“The situation with Andray is very fluid situation, a constant work in progress for us,” the mentor said Thursday at the homecoming presser hosted by Chooks-to-go at Marco Polo in Ortigas. “By November, he will be playing in his Chinese team so we don’t know if his Chinese team is going to allow him to play.”

Gilas’ woes with its naturalized player coincides with the problem  of adjusting  to the new competition schedule, which  Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) has been working on for the better part of the year.

The home-and-away qualifiers begin on November, right in the middle of the various national professional tournaments in Asia.
