Kai Sotto, a top prospect from the Philippines, has signed to play in the NBA G League next season. Sotto, ranked by ESPN as the No. 4 player in Georgia in the Class of 2020, spent this past season at Atlanta-based sports development organization The Skill Factory.
Sotto became the first international prospect to sign up for the program, joining ESPN’s top high school prospect Jalen Green, Isaiah Todd, and Daishen Nix.
“I think personally the G League is the best route for me to reach my dream, which is to make it to the NBA. I think the G League will be really competitive and it will help me improve,” Sotto told ESPN China.
A 7-2 center, Sotto excelled at Ateneo de Manila High School in Quezon City, the Philippines, before playing at The Skill Factory. In February, Sotto participated in the Basketball Without Borders (BWB) Global Camp during NBA All-Star 2020 in Chicago. He has represented the Philippines in several competitions, including the 2019 FIBA Under-19 Basketball World Cup.
