Alaska team manager Joaqui Trillo has asked the PBA Board of Governors to invite SMART-Gilas Pilipinas national coach Chot Reyes to a meeting to discuss the structure of the program.
“He needs to shed light regarding the national squad,” Trillo told InterAKTV in a telephone interview Wednesday. “Ano ba talaga ang papel ng mga amateur players, sino ba yung mga pwedeng magpa-draft, or if amateur players join the national squad, can they still join the PBA rookie draft?”
PBA chairman Mamerto Mondragon, who represents the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters on the board, said he already received Trillo’s request and is amenable to it. The board is set to meet next week.
