After his bid to play in the Asian Games was rejected, the NBA has allowed Jordan Clarkson to participate in this week’s games in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Not only will he finally suit up for Gilas, but Clarkson is expected to be the flag bearer for the Philippines at the opening ceremony.
The Philippine Olympic Committee has appealed to the NBA, citing that China has two NBA players on its roster.
The Philippines’ first game takes place on the 16th against Kazakhstan.
Clarkson took to Facebook to express his excitement, saying his heart is filled with gratitude for everyone that made this happen.
