Greg Slaughter expresses desire to play for Gilas Pilipinas

Greg Slaughter has expressed his desire and readiness to become a part of the training pool of Gilas Pilipinas for the upcoming SEA Games in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The 33-year old Fil-Am, who has yet to sign on the dotted line after his previous deal with NorthPort lapsed last January, posted a story on his Instagram account and tagged the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP), the country’s national sports association for basketball.

“I am available and have been working with 16-year NBA champion scout Gary Boyson,ā€ wrote the 7-footer out of Ateneo de Manila University.

ā€œI would love to be included in the national team pools,ā€ he added.

Slaughter averaged 14.3 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks for the Batang Pier before his contract expired.

His stint with the national team, however, faces a huge stumbling block since the former Brgy. Ginebra center would still need the approval of his mother team before being considered.

The top overall pick of the 2013 PBA draft, who watched Gilas’ game against the Tall Blacks at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last February 28, last played for the national team during the 2019 staging of the SEA Games.
