PBA big man Greg Slaughter has announced that he has joined BeoBasket, reportedly the biggest international basketball agency in the world.

Slaughter said in an Instagram post that he is delighted to join the agency that represented the likes of Denver Nuggets' Nikola Jokic, Dallas Mavericks' Boban Marjanovic, and Phoenix Suns' Dario Saric.

"They represent many athletes whom I greatly admire that compete in the NBA, EuroLeague, and Asia," he said.

The signing is apparently part of Slaughter's push to join the Philippine national basketball team in the 2023 FIBA World Cup.

"They also represented the most number of players competing in the 2019 World Cup and I look forward to adding to that in 2023! I am also extremely honored to be the first Filipino player in their roster. Wherever my journey takes me, I will always proudly represent the Philippines, especially our national team," he said.

Slaughter, who is currently staying in the US, recently took a sabbatical from the PBA after failing to get a contract extension from Barangay Ginebra.
