MANILA--Coach Chot Reyes will bring in a small lineup when his Gilas Pilipinas pool squad takes on the Visayas All-Stars in the final leg of the PBA All-Star Week at the University of San Agustin Gym in Iloilo City on May 27.

With national team mainstay Junemar Fajardo suiting up for the Chito Victolero-led All-Star squad, Reyes will put Japeth Aguilar at the center spot as he takes the responsibility of guarding both Fajardo and Greg Slaughter, Aguilar's teammate at Ginebra, at the low post.

Reyes also named Troy Rosario and Carl Cruz to his Gilas lineup, manning the power forward spot.

Taking care of the wings are Mac Belo, Allein Maliksi, Calvin Abueva, Gabe Norwood, and Matt Wright.

Jayson Castro and Jio Jalalon will take turns in the point guard spot for Gilas.
