Toroman has been keeping tabs on Gilas’ games.
Former Gilas Pilipinas coach Rajko Torman has definitely been keeping an eye on the national team—well over a decade since he was sent packing.
With the FIBA World Cup just a few months away, questions are now arising on who will be selected as Gilas' final 12.
Speaking with Noli Eala on Power & Play, Toroman gave a shoutout to two Gilas players who has been stellar in his eyes and could help out the national team come the World Cup in August.
The first? None other than Dwight Ramos.
“I was always talking about how I'm impressed by Dwight Ramos,” said Toroman. “He is looking like [a] European player like before [with] Marcio Lassiter. A lot of high IQ, good shooter, good size.”
Ramos is widely considered as one of Gilas' most consistent players after playing for the country in several windows in the FIBA qualifiers.
The former Indonesia head coach also mentioned Bobby Ray Parks Jr. as someone who has impressed him.
“The development of Bobby Ray Parks, I think that he deserved to be in the national team,” said Toroman.
Parks has shown a lot of improvement since playing for the Nagoya Diamond Dolphins in the Japan B.League.
Aside from attacking the basket, Parks has also shown that he has a nice touch from three-point range, along with the willingness to accept whatever role is given him.
Ramos and Parks are definitely in the conversation to be included in the final 12, but until that has been announced, anything can still happen.
