Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) Executive Director Sonny Barrios said that apart from FIBA, they have yet to receive clearance from the Los Angeles Lakers and the National Basketball Association (NBA) for Jordan Clarkson to represent the Philippines. In an interview on CNN Philippines’ Sports Desk on Tuesday, Barrios said the SBP has submitted Clarkson’s passport to FIBA and has received a list of other supporting documents to secure formal approval. “Frankly, the ball is on our court,” said Barrios. “Once we complete what they require, we should expect them to reply maybe within 48 hours after they receive the documents.”

Former NBA player and naturalized Filipino Andray Blatche looks forward to possibly teaming up with Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson who is currently taking steps for him to be eligible for Gilas Pilipinas. “Hopefully, he can join,” Blatche said in an interview with News5′s Fraulein Olavario. Although Blatche, who previously played for the Washington Wizards and the Brooklyn Nets, managed his expectations and said that Clarkson getting clearance from the Lakers might still be a long way to go. “But I know it’s gonna be difficult with the NBA season coming up and training camp, but we hope for the best,” added Blatche.
