In a surprising twist, NLEX's Jericho Cruz will have a shot at playing in the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers.
He's not doing it with Gilas Pilipinas though.
Cruz was in the 24-man pool of Guam, as recently released by the Guam Basketball Confederation.
Cruz will join Guam's core of players like Earnest Ross, Curtis Washington, and NCAA D-1 player Jonathan Galloway out of UC Irvine.
Guam is in Group C of the FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers and they start round 1 next month against Hong Kong and New Zealand.
