Andray Blatche will play for the Philippines.
Relax, we have our naturalized import
Gilas Team Manager Butch Antonio post a photo on Instagram showing the arrival of the much awaited Andray Blatche.
Five days after his expected arrival, Andray Blatche showed up in the Philippines as he is once again expected to lead the Gilas Pilipinas to the World Cup. The Philippines has been practicing without Andray Blatche and he will immediately get to work before they depart for Japan on Tuesday.
Andray Blatche was again tapped by the Philippines after recent import picked Isaiah Austin underperformed to expectation. Andray Blatche who is currently under contract with a Chinese team will play a couple of games for the Philippines before returning back to China.
Gilas will face Japan on the 24th of November in Japan and will fly back to the Philippines to face Taiwan on the 27th at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The cloud of speculation and uncertainty just cleared out with Andray Blatche returning to the Philippines.
