    MATTHEW Wright was the newest addition to the Gilas Pilipinas pool as the Phoenix shooter attended the early Thursday evening session at Meralco Gym.

    The Fil-Canadian sniper made his return to the national team pool after being left out in the sixth window of the 2019 Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers.

    Wright averaged 5.9 points on a 32-percent shooting from deep, to go with 1.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists as he played four windows for the Philippines.
