    Clarkson ‘and’ Brownlee


    A tantalizing prospect. Arguably the two brightest Gilas Pilipinas stars together on the floor in the Fiba Basketball World Cup.

    For PBA chairman Ricky Vargas, it would be worth the effort for officials to have Justin Brownlee suit up alongside Jordan Clarkson in the world meet.


    With Clarkson unable to suit up as a local for the Philippines, Vargas believes the Philippines could seek the approval of the world basketball governing body Fiba to give Brownlee such status. Brownlee, who first saw action in the Philippines in 2016, gained Filipino citizenship by naturalization early this year.

    "It's worth a try, di ba? Bakit hindi?" said Vargas.

    The Fiba Basketball World Cup is set Aug. 25 to Sep. 10 to be co-hosted by the Philippines, Japan and Indonesia, with the final phase set at MOA Arena in Pasay City.
