The Jordan Clarkson situation for Gilas Pilipinas remains tricky.

With the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China fast approaching, the Philippines should already have a clear picture on whether or not Clarkson can play as a local.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case and as Gilas prepares for the World Championships with Andray Blatche as the main naturalized player, Clarkson can only wait and stay ready just in case.

“I’m just staying ready,” Clarkson tol d Steve Angeles of ABS-CBN’s North Amerian bureau.

“Just working. If I get the opportunity, it’ll happen. If not, it is what it is and I’ll have to suit up another time,” Clarkson added.

The Cleveland Cavalier has only played for Gilas Pilipinas once and that was in the 2018 Asian Games where the national team finished 5th.

Clarkson is yet to play for Gilas in a true FIBA tournament.
