Gilas Pilipinas will be parading a 17-man roster for the Jones Cup in Taipei with Ray Parks as a late addition to the team.

Initially, the 24-year-old Parks wasn’t part of the lineup bound for Taipei announced by national team coach Chot Reyes last week.

Parks, who is also included in the team’s Southeast Asian Games lineup, saw a lot of minutes during Gilas’ tune-up games against PBA teams the past week and on Wednesday, team manager Butch Antonio confirmed the versatile guard was indeed added to the roster.

The 6-foot-4 Parks, however, said he has yet to informed whether or not he’s part of the “exact lineup.”

“I have to wait for comment if I’ll be in the exact lineup playing in the Jones Cup, but for sure I’m going on the trip.” – INQUIRER.net
