Guiao says Gilas coaching job in uncertainty after Fiba World Cup


Gilas Pilipinas coach Yeng Guiao said he has no idea what the future holds for Gilas Pilipinas in the wake of a dismal campaign in the 2019 Fiba World Cup.

“Nothing is on the table right now as far as the future of the national team is concerned,” Guiao said.

Guiao and the entire team arrive early Tuesday.

The Philippine national team succumbed to a dismal 0-5 win-loss card and finished the quadrennial tournament as the last placer.

Guiao also declined to comment about Gilas plans until he has talked with Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas bosses.

“I’m not even thinking of the (Olympic Qualifying Tournament) for Tokyo yet,” Guiao said. “I have to talk to our SBP bosses as soon as i arrive. We cannot tackle that problem yet until I meet with SBP officials.”

As for his own future as Gilas coach, the veteran coach said, “I will have a serious discussion with my coaching staff and my family before my meeting with SBP.

“I do not want to speculate beyond that.”
