This was announced by SBP executive director and spokesperson Sonny Barrios during Tuesday’s Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum.
Barrios deferred the announcement of names with regards to the PBA players as it will be revealed at the end of the semifinals of the 2022 Philippine Cup.
Barrios said majority of the Gilas pool will be composed of PBA players.
Brothers Thridy and Kiefer Ravena again team up with Gilas.
The Philippines faces Lebanon on Aug. 25 and Saudi Arabia on Aug. 29.
Barrios said Gilas will begin practice on Monday. There is still no date for Jordan Clarkson’s arrival.
“’Yan ’yung sa ngayon ay pinagtutuunan ng pansin. I understand they will start practice on the 15th. Ang semifinals ng PBA, nasa Game Four na so hopefully, sooner than later, malaman natin kung ano kalalabasan (ng semis),” said Barrios.
