REIGNING Fiba 3x3 World Tour champion Novi Sad of Serbia and world No. 6 Sakiai Gulbele of Lithuania lead the teams making the trip to the country for the 2020 Fiba 3x3 Chooks-to-Go Manila Masters in May.
The Philippines is hosting a World Tour Masters for the first time since 2014.
Novi Sad will be led by top-ranked 3x3 player Dusan Bulut, while Sakiai Gulbele will lean on world no. 14 Aurelijus Pukelis.
The two teams will pose a big threat to the Filipino squads once the tourney rolls on May 2 and 3 at SM Megamall Fashion Hall in Pasig.
"It's really a treat for Filipino basketball fans as the best clubs in the world are playing on our soil. It will also be a huge boost for our points, this time for the Paris Olympics," said Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3x3 league owner Ronald Mascarinas.
The Philippines is currently preparing for the 2020 Fiba 3x3 Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Bangalore, India this March.
