Bowles has been hired by Indonesian basketball federation as the country’s naturalized player for international competitions and that will include the SEA Games in December this year.
Incidentally, Indonesia also hired the services of Serbian coach Rajko Toroman as head coach. Toroman was the first head coach of the Smart Gilas program in 2009.
This time, he will look to spearhead Indonesia to a gold medal in the men’s basketball tournament, but it will be a daunting task as they will battle the Philippines, which recently hired multi-titled PBA coach Tim Cone as the national coach.
