“Chris McCullough should be the next naturalized big to carry Gilas!! My thoughts!!” wrote the 39-year old native of Syracuse New York on his Twitter account.
McCullough, who is currently playing in Korea after leading the San Miguel Beermen to the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup crown, expressed his appreciation for the first naturalized player under the Gilas program with a tweet of his own.

“Appreciate that big dog!” wrote the former NBA player.
Douthit played for Gilas during the 2014 Asian Games and the 2015 Southeast Asian Games but it Andray Blatche who suited up for the team in the 2014 FIBA World Cup.
The 24-year old McCullough, who posted 16-game averages of 32.4 points, 15.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.4 blocks in his first PBA stint, had earlier expressed his willing to play for the country via tweet back in July.
