The Philippine Baketball Association along with Talk N’ Text, granted Gilas Chot Reyes’ wish to include Troy Rosario to the National Basketball team.
The Gilas Coach admitted that he wanted to have the Talk N’ Text player for the team but he was stopped by the agreement between the PBA and the Samahan Basktebol ng Pilipinas.
In the said agreement, the National Basketball team is only allowed to borrow one player from each PBA team.
Last Sunday, it was announced that TNT Point guard Jayson Castro was added to the Gilas line-up.
But this Tuesday, the veteran coach confirmed, thru his twitter, the inclusion of the 2nd Katropa player in the Philippine Basketball team.
Rosario was once part of the Gilas team during the 2015 FIBA Asia Championships in China.
