Some of the players who is likely to fill the lineup are June Mar Fajardo, Jeff Chan, Raymond Almazan, Gabe Norwood, Marcio Lassiter, Alex Cabagnot, Calvin Abueva, Japeth Aguilar, Terrence Romeo, JC Intal, Paul Lee, Marc Pingris and naturalized player Andray Blatche.

If Jayson Castro will change his decision and unretire from international play we should expect that he will be part of this pool.

The team will be headed by Coach Chot Reyes who replaced Tab Baldwin last October 2016.
