The PBA Board of Governors shall hold a meeting on Wednesday to address concerns regarding Gilas Pilipinas, particularly its campaign in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament next year which may overlap with the league schedule.
“Definitely by tomorrow, the Board will come out with a clear-cut, unambiguous position in this.”
After finishing among the top four nations in the 2015 FIBA Asia Championship, the Philippines gained passage to the 2016 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament which will happen on July next year.
The nation has until October 18 to confirm its participation in the tournament and choosing not to join may lead to stiff sanctions from basketball’s governing body.
Salud added the league is trying to avoid a situation where it has to pull out PBA mother teams’ star players in the middle of a season.
“We want to be of help and fully supportive of the national cause but with FIBA changing the format internationally, we have to sit down again, analyze, and assess the situation before arriving with a consensus that is acceptable to the owners,” he said.
Salud however reiterates the league is trying to give its best efforts to help the national team.
