The Final Four begins on Monday with crowd-drawers San Miguel Beer and Barangay Ginebra locking horns.

PBA seeks permanent solution to FIBA issue

September 23, 2016

MANILA, Philippines - PBA commissioner Chito Narvasa said yesterday the new FIBA competition format of six home-and-away windows over a two year period to qualify for the 2019 World Cup and 2020 Tokyo Olympics will require a “permanent solution” with the SBP to choose the best players for the national team.

Narvasa said the PBA Board of Governors is solidly behind the SBP’s efforts in forming the most competitive Gilas team possible. “Every PBA player will be available for Gilas,” he said. “I think it should be mandatory for a player to join Gilas if he is chosen because this is for our country. FIBA will inform us of the schedule of the six qualifying windows and the PBA will work around that timetable.”

Narvasa said at the moment, he is leaning towards a common draft for all players on Oct. 30. An option is to hold a split draft where players in the Gilas pool are selected separately from others. That would mean only the rights to the Gilas players will be assigned and they may join the PBA only after their release from the national team....
