Chot Reyes to Japeth: Come home
MANILA, Philippines – Gilas Pilipinas national team coach Chot Reyes advised NBA hopeful Japeth Aguilar to come home instead and use his talents here in the Philippines.
Reyes was a reacting to a report by Spin.ph wherein Aguilar supposedly asked to be traded from Talk 'N Text before he returned to the country.
On his Twitter account, Reyes offered “fatherly advice” to Aguilar, saying that the player should not publicly demand to be traded since it smacks of selfishness.
Reyes also refuted Aguilar’s claims that he was not given ample playing time with the Tropang Texters, adding that playing time is earned, not demanded or expected.
Reyes capped off his string of tweets by saying he only wants the best for Aguilar. -- ANC Alerts, January 21, 2013
