Powell on playing for Gilas: ‘Whatever happens, happens’

Count Myles Powell in.

The Bay Area star is open to playing for Gilas Pilipinas as a naturalized player as he expressed interest via social media platform Twitter just recently.

He replied to a tweet by @PBAInsider greeting Quincy Miller on his birthday as it vouched for the Converge import’s naturalization through that same post.

“Add me to the list too,” Powell tweeted.

Turns out that the two pals, both of which have NBA pedigrees to boast of, have actually discussed that idea to themselves after learning about Justin Brownlee.

The resident Barangay Ginebra import earlier this week saw his naturalization bid pass the first reading in the House of Representatives.2022-PBA-Commissioners-Cup-Bay-Area-vs-Magnolia-Myles-Powell-3-scaled Powell on playing for Gilas: 'Whatever happens, happens' Basketball News PBA  - philippine sports news

“Me and Quincy were just talking about it off the court,” he shared after the Dragons’ win over Magnolia in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Saturday.

“We just saw Brownlee get cleared for that. Me being out here, not knowing how long I might be out here… so it was just, you know, talks.

“Whatever happens, happens,” he added with a smile.

Powell is just the latest to express interest in playing for Gilas after Miller, who took to Instagram to say he wants to do so just last October.

It sure is good news for a program looking to build a pool of naturalized players for future competitions, especially with the FIBA World Cup approaching.

For now, though, Powell wants to focus on one thing.

“I want to win a championship in the PBA.”
