      Ricardo Ratliffe, a naturalized U.S.-born basketball player, will be able to compete at the 2018 Asian Games Jakarta Palembang in Indonesia in August.

      The Korea Basketball Association said Tuesday that the Olympic Council of Asia has informed it that Ratliffe is eligible to play in the Asian Games in reply to its inquiry.

      Ratliffe became a naturalized Korean citizen in January under a special program that fast-tracks citizenship for people with certain specialized skills.
