MANILA, Philippines – Seven players who will also compete for the Philippines at the 12th Asian Games in China are expected to be part of the Gilas Pilipinas team for the 2023 FIBA World Cup, which will increase enthusiasm among basketball fans.

Justin Brownlee, a naturalized player who is a key member of Gilas Pilipinas because of his knowledge and abilities, is the team’s leader. In addition to Kiefer Ravena, Scottie Thompson, RR Pogoy, June Mar Fajardo, CJ Perez, Japeth Aguilar, and Jamie Malonzo, who are all positioned to make an impact in the Hangzhou campaign, he will have backing from a solid squad.

Ange Kouame, Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser, Chris Newsome, and Calvin Oftana are the newcomers to this strong group. After the Philippines’ outstanding performance against China in the FIBA World Cup, these players have cemented their positions on the team. The team’s incredible World Cup run, where they placed 24th overall, illustrates their tenacity and promise.

Notably, Kiefer Ravena is the only player on the Gilas team that presently calls Japan home. Despite playing significant roles in the most recent FIBA World Cup campaign, Dwight Ramos and AJ Edu decided to forgo the Asian Games due to their devotion to their careers abroad.

The Gilas Pilipinas squad creates the ideal environment for an exciting and hopeful adventure in both the forthcoming Asian Games and the FIBA World Cup thanks to the combination of young talent and experienced players. As these remarkable athletes represent the Philippines on the world basketball stage, fans eagerly anticipate their exploits.

Basketball fans are buzzing with anticipation as they await the presence of some of their favorite players at the highly anticipated 2019 Asian Games in China. One such player is the well-known Rhenz Abando, who made quite a sensation when he declared that his participation in the Asiad would ultimately depend on his Korean club, Anyang KGC.

The possibility of Justin Brownlee heading Gilas Pilipinas at the Asian Games is another intriguing development for fans. The enthusiasm for the competition has increased as a result of the fantastic news that was announced by FIBA.COM.

Distinguished coaches Tim Cone and Chot Reyes are also on the Gilas Pilipinas coaching staff during the Asian Games. Reyes has announced his decision to stand down, opening the door for the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) to choose a new coach for the team.

It’s important to note that the Entry by Names (EBN) submission date was set on July 25th. According to Bambol Tolentino, president of the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC), any list presented by a national Olympic committee prior to this date is regarded as official.

The POC chairman said that any changes to the roster at this time would require an appeal to the Asian Games Organizing Committee.

How the SBP will organize its preparations is an open question as the Asian Games approach. The Philippine Basketball Association’s (PBA) planned news conference on Thursday afternoon is an exciting development because it may provide more information about the team’s preparations and goals.

In retrospect, the SBP and PBA chose the core of Rain or Shine, strengthened by the acquisition of Jordan Clarkson, to represent the Philippines at the 2018 Asian Games. This legendary team advanced to the quarterfinals but suffered a difficult defeat to South Korea, ultimately placing sixth overall. Fans are eagerly expecting the announcement of the final roster and the opportunity to watch their favorite athletes compete at the next Asian Games.
