June Mar Fajardo and LA Tenorio officially make their return for the Philippine team as the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas on Wednesday announced Gilas Pilipinas’ final 12-man roster.

Fajardo, the most dominant player in the country today, will suit up for the Philippines against Kazakhstan in the fifth window of the 2018 Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers on Friday night.


The four-time PBA MVP missed Gilas’ last two games against Iran and Qatar two months ago due to a shin injury.

Tenorio, 34, will don the national team’s colors for the first time since the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea.


Joining Fajardo and Tenorio are naturalized guard Stanley Pringle, Scottie Thompson, Greg Slaughter, Japeth Aguilar, Beau Belga, Alex Cabagnot, JP Erram, Marcio Lassiter, Gabe Norwood and Matthew Wright.
