    Sep 19, 2017

    IT is still uncertain if he’ll make the final lineup, but Andre Paras is simply grateful to be part of the pool of players representing the Philippines in the Fiba Asia Champions Cup in Chenzhou, China.

    Paras has been listed as a reserve for the Chooks-To-Go Pilipinas team and will make the team if travel documents for American reinforcement Isaiah Austin and Congolese Rod Ebondo are not completed before the tournament.

    "I feel really thankful because they accepted me to be part of the team," said Paras during the team sendoff at Discovery Suites.
