Will Terrence Romeo play for Gilas?
Averaging 17 points with 3 assists and almost 2 rebounds per game, Terrence Romeo has established his role in the Philippine squad as one of the go-to guys but will he be available to play?
Terrence Romeo has attended a number of practices of the Gilas Pilipinas team but never really suited up for the team due to an injury, but is it just an injury or is it because of his current situation with the Global Port management?
Reports have surfaced about his demands to be traded and this has put some bad light on the young superstar. While there are a number of new guards in the Gilas Pool, the likes of Kiefer Ravena and Kevin Alas there is no simply replacing a guy like Terrence Romeo in the lineup.
In a recent interview, Coach Chot Reyes has said that he is still open to getting Terrence Romeo, in fact, he is still a part of the pool and the 12-man lineup is still to be decided on the very last day of submission.
We know that Terrence Romeo wants to play for the National, this is why he is physically almost available on the practice but we know that there are things beyond basketball that need to be ironed out first and the prospect of having Terrence Romeo with the team is getting dimmer by the day.
We are almost certain that Romeo will not be able to make it, it is just a matter of time until Coach reveals his final line up and regardless of how good Terrence Romeo is, he was not able to practice with the team, therefore, he is less likely to be a part of the final line up.
