Barangay Ginebra San Miguel head coach Tim Cone is set to coach the Gilas Pilipinas national team in the upcoming 2019 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games that will be held in the country later this year.

Cone, known for being the winningest coach in the history of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), is one of the top bets for the position previously held by Yeng Guiao.

However, the veteran professional coach revealed that his appointment will just be purely for upcoming the SEA Games.

"Even though my appointment is just a stop gap measure and a short term commitment, I am incredibly honored and proud to be selected to coach in the SEA Games," Cone said in a text message to Courtside Philippines.

Cone added that despite his short-term arrangement with the national team, he is looking forward to quickly jumpstart his planning for the regional competition.

"Wow! I'm very happy to help in any way. I will sit down with the SBP over the next couple of days and come up with a plan of attack in terms of preparation, and we're hoping by the end of the week we'll have a pool of players working together at full force. I'm extremely excited to get going," he ended.
