National team coach Yeng Guiao is looking at the possibility of inviting Filipino-American Remy Martin to join Gilas for the 2019 Fiba World Cup.

Now in his second year in Arizona State, the six-foot guard is currently averaging 13.5 points, 5.2 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.3 steals, helping the Sun Devils to a 21-9 record in the Pac-12 Conference.

“He can shoot the three, he can drive to the basket, he’s a great passer, he’s a hustler, he defends well. So who knows,” Guiao said in an interview over Rappler Talk.

According to the Fiba rules, a multinational player should secure a local passport of his desired country to play for before turning 16 years old.

“From what I hear, he already has a passport before 16. Again, that’s something we have to confirm,” Guiao said.

“Kailangan siguro, imbitahan natin siya, tignan natin what he can contribute and then make a decision,” the veteran mentor added.
