Jordan Clarkson Won’t Play for Philippines in 2018 Asian Games

Jordan Clarkson unlikely to play for Philippines in Asian Games, will play in FIBA qualifying

Included in the statement by NBA spokesperson Tim Frank, NBA players can participate in worldwide competitions that are part of their agreement with FIBA which was the Olympics, FIBA World Cup, Continental Cup and Qualifying Tournaments.

In a statement released on Sunday, NBA spokesperson Tim Frank said Clarkson can not participate in the upcoming games due to an existing agreement of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) with the league's players.

"Clarkson, a Filipino-American, will however be cleared to play for the country in the FIBA World Cup qualifying tournament, in which the Philippines has two games scheduled in September before the National Basketball Association season begins in October".

After getting clearance from the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Asian Games committee, Clarkson failed to get the go-signal from the National Basketball Association.
