The Gilas lineup was confirmed by coach Chot Reyes to CNN Philippines. The 2018 Asian Games will be held in Indonesia this coming August with the Philippines hoping to snap the dry spell in basketball.

Although a powerhouse in the sport in Asia several decades ago, the country has seemingly fallen behind after countries such as China, Iran, Jordan and other central Asian countries beefed up their basketball prowess. Now, the Philippines is raring to bounce back to the top.
