Gilas awaiting Blatche's arrival

Andray Blatche

MANILA, Philippines – Though opening their training camp on November 3, Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes and the pool are still awaiting naturalized player Andray Blatche a week to go to the match.

“That’s why we go to the very last day to announce the final 12,” said Gilas team manager Butch Antonio when asked until when will the national coach decide on the status of Blatche.

Blatche’s initial words were he’s joining the camp on Monday. But apparently, he’s decided not to skip his team’s game in the CBA Friday before finally flying over to the Philippines.

An important activity that Blatche has missed was Gilas’ three-day camp at Taal Esplendido that ended Wednesday.

In a photo posted by Reyes on his Twitter account, present in the camp were June Mar Fajardo, Japeth Aguilar, Raymund Almazan, Troy Rosario, Gabe Norwood, Allein Maliksi, Matthew Wright, Calvin Abueva, Mac Belo, Kiefer Ravena, RR Pogoy, Carl Bryan Cruz, Kevin Alas and Jayson Castro.

The pool leaves for Tokyo on Tuesday.
