Five key players who we hope would be made available to join Tab Baldwin’s current pool

Here are the five players, Gilas fanatics are waiting and hoping for and can play key roles if the Philippines is to win a spot in next year's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Player’s Name

June Mar Fajardo
It is comfortable to realize why fans are hoping and praying for Fajardo to rejoin Gilas. Not only is he the most dominant player in the PBA right now, the gentle giant has shown in the last Fiba-World Cup and Asian Games that he can hold his own against some of the best big men out there. The current pool now has big men Asi Taulava and Sonny Thoss, both of whom are ideal as back-ups but not as starters. And with naturalized player Andray Blatche reporting for camp out of shape, it has become even more imperative to have Fajardo in that lineup.
Marcio Lassiter
The present Gilas pool can reckon on gunners like Gary David and Jayson Castro, but if Gilas wants a zone-buster there's not any better player now in the PBA for that post than Marcio Lassiter.
Paul Lee
He has the mixture of skills, heft, strength and touch unique for Filipino guards. The previous University of the East standout can also perform numerous positions and, as shown in the Fiba Asia Cup in China, is talented of delivering in the most pressure-laden positions.
Mark Barroca
If Gilas coach Tab Baldwin flunk to convert  LA Tenorio to get on team, the next best selection, we feel, is Star guard Mark Barroca, who has both the skills and the international experience to fill the gap at the point guard position. With the exception of Jimmy Alapag in case he does unretire, the current Gilas lineup has no natural point guard. In addition, both Terrence Romeo and Jayson Castro are shoot-first guards. Barroca is exactly the pass-first guard who can stretch a different look to the offense off the bench. 
Jeff Chan
Take a good air in the current progress pool. Let's admit it, Baldwin is not closely spoiled for selection when it comes to shooters. He obviously likes Dondon Hontiveros and, by force of circumstances or by choice, may give Gary David another run-out. But if he needs a guy who can spread the floor and knock down the three-pointer when left open, Chan is Baldwin's guy. Just search for Gilas' game against Croatia in last year's Fiba World Cup in Spain if you need more convincing. (Ref.SpinPH)
