REMY Martin on social media has expressed his interest to join the national squad.
Martin posted a photo on his Instagram account of a person wearing a jacket that has a Philippine flag on it. It was not clear if Martin is the person wearing the jacket.
The 20-year-old Martin also wrote the words “Ready whenever” and a Philippine flag emoji on his post. A telephone emoji was also included in the post that perhaps indicates that he is waiting for a phone call from officials of the national team.

Martin is currently playing for US NCAA Division 1 school Arizona State, where he averaged 13.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.2 assists.
National coach Yeng Guiao indicated his interest to have a closer look at Martin and see if he is capable of becoming part of the pool for the national squad.
Martin was already named as part of the ’23 for 23’ pool for the Fiba Basketball World Cup the country will host in 2023, but Guiao has also said he is not closing the door of Martin being part of the pool for the 2019 World Cup.
