Looks like Ricci Rivero is finally cleared to join Gilas Pilipinas.

The high-flying La Salle star was present in practice again Monday, however, he was in street clothes anew and was merely an observer.

Good news though, it appears that it's only a matter of time before he officially joins the Gilas pool.

It's just that La Salle has to make the final announcement.

"He came to tell us that he’s been allowed. But we haven’t gotten any official word yet from La Salle, we’re just waiting," head coach Chot Reyes said regarding Rivero.

"That's why he came here," he added.

Rivero was not included in the initial #23for23 pool released by Reyes for the national team.

La Salle apparently asked Gilas to exclude its current players during that time as the Green Archers were in transition following head coach Aldin Ayo's move to UST.
