Slaughter eyed to reinforce Gilas cadets

MANILA, Philippines — The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas is looking at seven-footer Greg Slaughter as a possible reinforcement to Gilas cadets in the November window of the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers.

“I think Greg (Slaughter) would be an asset,” said national team project director Tab Baldwin on Sports Page on TV5 Tuesday. “I’ve seen his video. I think it’s great. I would certainly welcome that.

“But it’s not a done deal at this point. We have to work out with Greg and the powers that be in this situation right now,” he added.

Ryan Gregorio, SBP president Al Panlilio’s special assistant, said they are in a wait-and-see situation since Ginebra still holds the rights on Slaughter.

“We are waiting for his negotiation with his PBA team,” said Gregorio.

Matt and Mike Nieto, Isaac Go, Rey Suerte, Allyn Bulanadi and Jaydee Tungcab are Gilas cadets to banner the Gilas team at the resumption of the Asia Cup qualifiers.
