See the official statements below:

PBA wasn't informed by SBP regarding their decision about Asiad pull out

“Actually, when we left the board meeting, I knew we will be supporting the Asian Games,” said PBA vice chairman Dickie Bachmann of Alaska. “I just found out about the decision through social media that we backed out. I had no knowledge that we backed out. It was only when Commissioner Willie Marcial told me that we backed out."

“Wag naman natin idiin ang PBA. Kung alam niyo lang ang puno't-dulo. Malinaw po ang usapan ni commissioner saka ng SBP na ganito ang gagawin,” said Chua.

"If they want to send a team tomorrow, we're okay with it," he said. "They will have the all out support of Rain or Shine and the PBA. "
