Gilas-Pilipinas is out as guest team in the PBA Governor's Cup, instead will compete in the FIBA Asia Cup
The PBA Board of Governors met on Thursday and agreed to explore ways to pare down the schedule for the season-ending Governors’ Cup even further to allow the team to compete in the FIBA Asia Cup in Wuhan, China from July 11 to 19.
“We wanted to make sure that Gilas could leave by the 10th of July. The board is fully supportive of the idea of giving Gilas the chance to participate in that tourney in Wuhan, China as a prep tournament," added Salud.
“(Gilas) coach Chot (Reyes) stressed that the competition the team will get in Wuhan is more suitable compared to participating in the third conference, where he will be playing teams lacking key players,” said Salud.
