The Philippine men’s national basketball team’s 14-man lineup for the Fiba Olympic qualifying tournament is now set.

The 14 players who will be with the team for its three-week training camp in Europe are Jayson Castro, Ranidel de Ocampo, Troy Rosario and Ryan Reyes of TNT, Gabe Norwood and Jeff Chan of Rain or Shine, June Mar Fajardo of San Miguel Beer, Marc Pingris of Star, Calvin Abueva of Alaska, Japeth Aguilar and LA Tenorio or Barangay Ginebra, two-time UAAP MVP Ray Parks, naturalized center Andray Blatche and Terrence Romeo of GlobalPort.

San Miguel’s Marcio Lassiter, who has been down with bronchitis, was the last to get cut.

Gilas Pilipinas team manager Butch Antonio revealed the final roster on his Twitter account early Thursday morning after meeting with the coaches.

The announcement was supposed to be made after Gilas’ 81-70 win over Iran in a tuneup game Wednesday night, but the decision was delayed after national team head coach Tab Baldwin said the match made the coaching staff and team officials “rethink things.”

The Philippine team leaves for Greece on Friday before heading to Turkey and takes part in a pocket tournament in Italy.

Of the 14 players, two will be placed on the reserved list.
