    ANDRAY Blatche is ready to don the national team colors once again.

    The naturalized center expressed his intentions to represent the Philippines anew in the next window of the 2019 Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers after serving a three-game suspension for his role in the brawl between members of the Philippine and Australian teams in July.
