Gilas has not yet been dissolved according to a statement released by Coach Chot Reyes a few hours after the SBP announced its future plans for the national team.

Reyes said, “I have been assured by both SBP President Manny V. Pangilinan and SBP Executive Director Sonny Barrios that the Gilas Pilipinas program has not been disbanded, and will continue under a regime of broader consultation with the basketball community, which I support."

However, Reyes also said that he is ready to accept what the SBP's decision will be regarding his future as Gilas' mentor.

"As to whether I will continue to be the Gilas coach or not depends on the SBP Board under whose mandate I have served since being appointed as Head Coach since 2012,” he stated.
