Jordan Clarkson Allegedly Earns P9 Million Per Day for Playing in Gilas Pilipinas
Utah Jazz star player Jordan Clarkson allegedly earns P9 million per day for playing in Philippine basketball team Gilas Pilipinas.
Jordan Clarkson, a Filipino-American but naturalized player, is reportedly paid more than P9 million a day as Gilas Pilipinas continues its preparations for the upcoming 2023 FIBA World Cup, which begins on Friday, August 25. According to an Abante report, this was revealed by PBA veteran Gerry “Mr Cool” Esplana.
Former PBA star poing guard disclosed in TeleTabloid’s ‘Sportalakan’ that one of his “bubwit” divulged the income of Utah Jazz player and NBA veteran Clarkson. Clarkson gets paid up to $170,000 every day, according to Esplana’s source.
“Sabi sa akin ng aking bubwit, pumapatak na kung babayaran siya per day, nasa close to $170,000 a day o PHP 9 million a day. Baka iyung per day na iyun ay noong pagdating niya sa Pilipinas,” Esplana said, based on the article.
It should be noted that the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) chose Clarkson for the World Cup over another naturalized Filipino in the same category, Justin Brownlee. Brownlee is slated to compete in the 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou, China, in September.
Clarkson and Gilas Pilipinas will meet the Dominican Republic, which is headed by Minnesota Timberwolves star center Karl Anthony Towns. Meanwhile, despite the fact that the FIBA World Cup 2023 has yet to begin, SBP promptly disputed allegations that Gilas Pilipinas player Jordan Clarkson is already injured.
This Monday night, the Gilas team was defeated by Mexico, 84-77 without JC on the line up. According to Gilas team manager Butch Antonio, the Utah Jazz player will rest for four days before the FWC.
