There will be no PBA veterans in the national team for the Jones Cup as coach Chot Reyes on Tuesday announced the roster for the competition set from July 15-23 in Taipei.

Mike Myers, who served as stand-in import for the TNT KaTropa in the recently-concluded Commissioner’s Cup, will beef up the young Philippine team.
