It's the human and fun side of our sports heroes

Abueva, Almazan out of Gilas


Gilas Pilipinas head coach Chot Reyes dropped Calvin Abueva and Raymond Almazan in the roster.

Abueva and Almazan will not see action on the second window of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, as the Philippines battles Australia and Japan next month.

“We’re dropping Abueva and Almazan for the second window, they haven’t showed up. It’s simply a matter of disinterest. I guess they’re not interested so we have to move on, we can’t wait for those guys,” Reyes said according to ABS-CBN sports.

Reyes said that the two didn’t go to a once-a-week session. Gilas has had three sessions this year.

They, however, can continue their Gilas duties on the third window of the qualifiers.
