NLEX Road Warriors vs Rain Or Shine Elasto Painters PBA match will be held on September 23 at PhilSports Complex. William Navarro of Gilas Pilipinas apologized on Thursday for his errors in joining the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) and Northport while simultaneously signing with the Seoul Samsung Thunders of the Korean Basketball League (KBL). But while being willing to accept whatever the SBP, PBA, and his mother club decide, he is still asking for a release from his contract so that he can “pursue his and his family’s aspirations.” The 6-foot-6 forward continued to attend Gilas Pilipinas practice last Monday at Meralco Gym even though he did not receive permission to join his Korean club team after SBP released Fiba’s decision.
He also contacted national team head coach Chot Reyes, team manager Butch Antonio, and SBP Executive Director Sonny Barrios, whom he also met on Friday, before making his public apology. The 25-year-old restated his intention to play in South Korea while still holding out hope for a clearance. Northport selected him in the Gilas round of the PBA Rookie Draft last year. “My family and I want to pursue our ambitions of having a basketball career, therefore I’m asking the SBP, the PBA, and the Northport Batang Pier Team for their kindness, compassion, and generosity. I promise to follow their ruling in my case, whatever it may be, Navarro stated. The star player from Ateneo, who last competed for the Philippines in the Asia Cup and the third round of the Fiba World Cup 2023 Asian Qualifiers in July, pledged to continue to support the Gilas Pilipinas program regardless of the outcome of his legal matter.
