PhilStar reported that Clarkson’s father wants his son to focus on his career with the Los Angeles Lakers as this upcoming season is a chance for the Lakers guard to secure a better deal.

But the younger Clarkson then said in a statement he will talk to his father about his intentions of playing for Gilas and he hopes “everything will be worked out.”

The statement reads:

“My father, Mike, has always looked out for my welfare and is only genuinely concerned about my career, my future, and my well-being. His thoughts are that of a very loving dad.

I just called him and we agreed we will talk about my playing for Gilas when I get back. Nothing is cast in stone. But I want to assure my Filipino brothers and sisters that, if given the chance and everything will be worked out, I sincerely wish to play for Gilas and contribute to the total team effort for flag and country. This is the reason why I am observing and familiarizing myself while here and will even follow them in Taipei for the Jones Cup so I can see them compete close-up and benefit from the learnings from said experience. Laban Pilipinas! Puso!”
