Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes thinks Kobe Paras is the future of the national team.

“Kobe, I think, is going to be the forerunner of that youth brigade,” said Reyes, explaining why he decided to include the second-generation star to the Philippine team set to see action in the 2017 Southeast Asian Games.

Though Paras is the youngest of the bunch, Reyes believes his skill set fits the squad perfectly, giving Gilas an agile forward who can play in both the inside and outside.

But more than anything, Reyes wants Paras to get used to playing at a high level.

“We do not have a position-oriented system. We have several bigs and everybody else is a guard or a forward. Everyone can make plays and that’s why we feel Kobe’s skill set is perfect for him,” he said.
