Jordan Clarkson to join Gilas Pilipinas for FIBA World Cup

Jordan Clarkson, a Utah Jazz guard, confirmed that he will join Gilas Pilipinas for the upcoming FIBA World Cup. Clarkson’s addition is a significant boost for the Philippine team, which is already looking strong with the return of Andray Blatche.

Gilas Pilipinas is currently in the midst of a training camp in Manila. The team will face off against China in a friendly match on August 2 before traveling to Serbia for the FIBA World Cup. The Philippines is grouped with Italy, Dominican Republic, and Angola in the tournament.

Clarkson is expected to arrive in Manila on August 6. He will have a few days to train with the team before the friendly match against China. Clarkson’s addition should give Gilas Pilipinas a significant boost in their preparations for the FIBA World Cup.

Kai Sotto's status still needs to be determined

Kai Sotto Uncertain

While the addition of Clarkson is a significant boost for Gilas Pilipinas, the status of Kai Sotto still needs to be determined. Sotto is a 7-foot-3 center who is considered to be one of the most promising young players in the world. He had a strong showing in the FIBA Asia Cup earlier this year, and he is expected to be a key player for Gilas Pilipinas in the FIBA World Cup.

However, Sotto is currently nursing a back injury that he suffered in the NBA Summer League. He has been cleared to play by the team’s medical staff, but he has not yet been cleared to practice with the team. Sotto is expected to decide his availability for the FIBA World Cup in the coming days.

The absence of Sotto would be a significant blow to Gilas Pilipinas. He is a dominant force in the paint, and he provides the team with a much-needed inside presence. However, even without Sotto, Gilas Pilipinas still has a strong roster capable of making a deep run in the FIBA World Cup.

Gilas Pilipinas ready to make a statement

Gilas Pilipinas is a young and hungry team ready to make a statement on the world stage. The team has been training hard in recent months, and they are confident they can compete with the best teams in the world.

The addition of Clarkson is a significant boost for Gilas Pilipinas, and it gives the team a chance to make a real run in the FIBA World Cup. The Philippines is currently ranked 34th in the world, but they have the talent and the potential to make a big jump in the rankings.

Gilas Pilipinas will face a tough challenge in the FIBA World Cup, but they are up for the task. The team is determined to make a statement and show the world that Philippine basketball is on the rise.

Deep run for FIBA World Cup

The status of Kai Sotto is still being determined, but even with him, Gilas Pilipinas still has a strong roster capable of making a deep run in the FIBA World Cup. The team has a mix of experienced veterans and young players hungry to prove themselves on the world stage.

Gilas Pilipinas will face a tough challenge in the FIBA World Cup, but they are up for the task. The team is determined to make a statement and show the world that Philippine basketball is on the rise.
