TIMNAS to field three naturalized players for SEAG

Indonesia is going all out for its Southeast Asian Games title defense.

With host Cambodia allowing three naturalized players for each team, PERBASI will field three naturalized players for the regional meet, namely Lester Prosper, Anthony Beane, and Dame Diagne.

Prosper, who stands at 6-foot-10, was the former import of Terrafirma. He now plays for Suwon KT.

Beane, a 28-year-old, 6-foot-2 product of Southern Illinois, played in Bulgaria and Italy before settling in Indonesia.

Diagne, a 6-foot-4 winger, was born in Senegal but grew up in Indonesia. The 17-year-old currently plays for the Indonesia Patriots. He was also part of the team that defeated the Philippines in Vietnam.

Headlining the homegrown Indonesians is Brandon Jawato.

With Mikawa already out of contention in the B.League, Jawato was able to secure clearance from his mother club to join Indonesia in Cambodia.

Holdovers from the gold-medal winning team are Andakara Prastawa, Yudha Saputera, Juan Laurent Kokodiputra, and Vincent Kosasih.

Completing the squad are Arighi Hadran Noor, Julian Chalias, Kaleb Ramot, and Widyanta Teja.
