Cone to coach Gilas in Asiad

Tim Cone has been appointed as head coach of Gilas Pilipinas in the 19th Asian Games following the resignation of Chot Reyes.

According to a DAILY TRIBUNE  source, Cone’s appointment had been formalized during a meeting among Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas president Al Panlilio, Philippine Basketball Association commissioner Willie Marcial, PBA chairman Ricky Vargas and PBA vice chairman Bobby Rosales last Tuesday in Makati City.

Also present in the meeting brokered by San Miguel Corporation president Ramon Ang was SMC sports director Alfrancis Chua.

Cone will be assisted by his deputy at Barangay Ginebra San Miguel in Richard del Rosario while Chua will serve as team manager.

It’s going to be Cone’s first time to coach the national squad in the Asian Games after leading the Centennial Team to a bronze medal in the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok.

He also coached the Nationals to a gold medal in the 30th Southeast Asian Games that the country hosted in 2019.
