Aside from making it to the NBA, Fil-Am prospect Remy Martin also hopes to play for Gilas Pilipinas in the near future.

“I always wanted to do was to represent another country at a sport that they love. They love basketball, they love watching, they love everything about the game,” Martin said in a video uploaded on Instagram.

“It’s a privilege to go out there and play the game that you love, especially at this level and I’m just trying to help.”

The Arizona State stalwart has declared his intention to apply for the upcoming NBA Draft this year.

Before the March Madness was cancelled due to COVID-19 scare, Martin was able to shine for Arizona State with game averages of 19.1 points, 4.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds.

“I’ve always wanted to go, especially play for the national team. I know one day that I’m going to make my way out there and it’s going to be a blast.”
