    Default Filipino Players in Foreign Leagues

    Juan, Thirdy, Kiefer, Kai, Tungcab. These are some players who have been offered/are playing in foreign leagues. With the recent development that the Korean Basketball League is increasing their Asian Import quota, I expect a lot more Filipinos to take the wares elsewhere. This bodes well for our NT. I also hope that the exodus of our young prospects spurs change within the PBA.

    Potential Players that will play overseas

    US NCAA: Caleum Harris, Jayden Harper(hope his passport done), Luke Tobias, Lowell Briones, maybe Kobe

    Please add if I forgot some players. Medyo rumarami na. Atleast we are being one of the best asian teams in exporting our players overseas.

    Tama ba understanding ko, they will allow someone to be tagged as asian import given that he is tagged as local in fiba competitions.. ( ie Jgdl and Ray Parks)

    This guy should've skipped college ball, imo (too bad, it's too late, he's now in the clutches of a certain empire). I think he would have done well in B. League div. 2, maybe even in the div. 1.

    I'm concerned about Abando's idleness (and all the other college players in the Philippines as well) in nearly 2 years now becoz of the pandemic. That is why having some of these college players in the Gilas pool is crucial since everything is uncertain as far as college basketball in the country is concerned. That long lay off or idleness hamper's a player's development.

    If these schools are thinking that they are helping their players by prohibiting them from training with & playing for Gilas, then they are damn wrong.
    "A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but that man can also move himself, and only then does that man truly begin his own game. Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power, when you stand before God, you cannot say, 'But I was told by others to do thus,' or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice." - King Baldwin IV

    Me too. A lot of our promising players haven't had any significant games in 2 years. Are they even in game shape? Tagal natengga. Then the leagues would allow them to play beyond the usual age limit to make up for the lost 2 years..
