Filipino-American Los Angeles Lakers player Jordan Clarkson is willing to play with Gilas Pilipinas in order to represent Philippines in International Competitions. But for now, Clarkson is having a wait and see attitude.

According to Mike Clarkson, father of Jordan, the Fil-Am guard of the L.A. Lakers is waiting for a clearance from the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), so that he will be allowed to play for the Philippine National Basketball team as a full-pledged Filipino.

The 24 year-old Baskeball player already has a Filipino passport ever since he was a teenager.

Anette Clarkson, the mother of Jordan, is from Angeles City, Pampanga.
