Isaiah Austin, the player who has been tapped by the national team has arrived in the Philippines.

The 23-year-old Isaiah Austin has found his next basketball journey that took him half way across the world from his hometown of Fresno, California.

Austin was one of the highly coveted college players coming into the 2014 NBA draft along side Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker to name a few. He was supposed to be the next great big man in the NBA but his NBA journey was cut before it even started as he was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome and was deemed unable to play competitive basketball.

2 years after, Austin was allowed basketball activities and accepted offers to play basketball in Serbia and in China. Today, he embarks on a new journey as he accepted a new challenge in his basketball story.

If everything goes well, he could end up being the naturalized player for the Philippine National Squad which is set to compete in the upcoming FIBA Asia Champions Cup that will be held in China on September 22 to 30.

Isaiah Austin, just like Marcus Douthit and Andray Blatche would be asked to devote to a long term commitment to develop familiarity and chemistry with the national team.

Coach Chot Reyes recently said that he is looking for a young and talented guy that can help the Philippines for a long period and they might just have found him.

Looking forward to this next step of my Journey, life is a roller coaster but definitely worth the ride! Thank you to the people of the Philippines for the warm welcome! Can't wait to get to know more about this beautiful country 🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭 Gilas Pilipinas Chooks-to-Go

10 Hottest PBA Courtside Reporters

It's a good thing that these ladies weren't ranked in this video. Not only will it be too difficult, it will also be too unjust.

As the games in the PBA start heating up and the country is getting all the more hotter, these PBA courtside reporters isn't at all helping and is keeping the PBA smoldering hot. PBA and TV5 has done a great job in aqcuiring these intelligent and attractive courtside reporters.
