Blackwater Elite Import Greg Smith is willing to play for the Philippine National Basketball Team as a naturalized player.
Due to this, Blackwater team owner Dioceldo Sy has voluntarily offered the services of the former NBA player to Gilas Pilipinas.
Prior to this, Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas President Al Panlilio revealed that he is planning to create a pool of foreign players that will act as back-up for naturalized player Andray Blatche.
Due to Sy’s offer, Smith has been seen practicing with Gilas last April 20 at the Meralco Gym.
Sy also plans to meet with Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre and Gilas coach Chot Reyes in order to prepare the naturalization of Smith, and his participation in the national basketball team.
