COACH CHOT REYES ASSURES PBA, GILAS CADETS WILL ENTER THE DRAFT


PhilBoxing.com




The PBA Annual Draft has received a major boost with the assurance of re-appointed Gilas national coach Chot Reyes that all the players in the Gilas Cadet team will enter the Annual Draft on October 30.

Reyes told the Manila Standard that ?the first issue is to make sure the Gilas Cadets enter the draft and he will tell them ?if you don?t want to play in the PBA you won?t play for Gilas?, the national team. He said the players ?must play in the PBA to be in game shape.?

He also revealed that the 10 PBA teams will ?release at least one player? 30 days before any FIBA tournament so they could practice with the team ?outside of the Gilas players.?

At the same time he said they would search for ?two young players who are 6?11? in height either from the US or Europe? who he hopes will be naturalized and ?should be able to play with (multi-titled PBA Most Valuable Player) center Junmar Fajardo ? even as Andray Blatche, who played well alongside Junmar, is still with the team.

Chot said Tab Baldwin would remain as a consultant and that he will ?decide on the coaching staff.?

PBA Commissioner Chito Narvasa told The Standard he welcomed the appointment of Reyes and the steps he is initiating saying, ?this is very good and will boost the draft and the program. It will lift the PBA to a higher level.?

The on-going PBA Governors Cup best-of-seven finals between Ginebra San Miguel and the Meralco Bolts attracted sell-out crowds at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in what has been a fiercely competitive series with Ginebra going for the championship in Game 6 on Wednesday.

Coach Reyes steered the Gilas National Team to the FIBA World Cup in Spain where they put on a creditable performance where they beat Senegal and gave the fancied European teams like France a tough game after finishing runners-up to Iran in the FIBA Asia Championships in Manila in 2013.
