Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 5) — Few names were added to the Gilas Pilipinas lineup to bolster the country's campaign in the 2017 William Jones Cup in Taiwan.

Jio Jalalon, Mac Belo, RR Pogoy, Ed Daquioag, Fonso Gotladera, Matthew Wright, and Mike Myers were called to represent the national squad.

Belo will make his return to national team duty after recovering from a left knee injury.

Myers, who was TNT KaTropa's back up import in the just-concluded the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Commissioner's Cup, will be the squad's lone reinforcement.

Gilas head coach Chot Reyes revealed the 16-man rotation on his Twitter account Tuesday evening.

Completing the Gilas lineup are Kobe Paras, Kiefer Ravena, Mike Tolomia, Almond Vosotros, Von Pessumal, Kevin Ferrer, Carl Bryan Cruz, Raymar Jose, and Filipino-German Christian Standhardinger.

Winning five championships under its belt, the Philippines is the winningest team in the tournament.

The 39th edition of the William Jones Cup will happen on July 15 to 23.
