Filipino’s “teenage talent” basketball finally passed the college level to the NBA G-League

Kai Sotto, an 18-year-old Filipino basketball talent, has agreed to sign an official deal with the NBA G-League next season.

According to reports confirmed by Shams Charania, popular journalist for The Athletic Newspaper, Kai Sotto, a young talented Filipino basketball player, has officially signed a professional contract with the NBA G-League (NBA League).

With a height of up to 2m18 and superior ball playing capabilities compared to players in Southeast Asia, Kai Sotto has long been regarded by experts as completely capable of joining the NBA if properly established. Way. Way. Coming to the United States from April 2019 and practicing the Skills Academy in Atlanta, it is now time for the young stars of the Philippines to prove themselves.

This is not the first time that Kai Sotto has drawn the interest of experts around the world

Before that, both Spanish basketball giants Real Madrid and Barcelona followed the philippines’ juvenile prodigy. There were details about the Spanish Royal Team promising a salary of $1 million to get Kai Sotto ‘s signature.

At the time, Kai Sotto had to choose between playing basketball in Europe or attending the NCAA (American College Basketball Tournament) before entering the NBA. But with the NBA G-League having changed its recruiting policies over the years, Kai Sotto made his own choices.

Officially signed with the NBA G-League Tournament, Kai Sotto, along with the best talents in the United States such as Jalen Green, Isaiah Todd and Daishen Nix, will take steps to prepare for the journey in the future. All of them will receive a contract of up to six numbers and the number one talent of the United States in 2021, and Jalen Green will receive around $500,000 for a year of competition.

The NBA G-League has also picked up this idea of encouraging high school talent to be hired in order to be able to enter the business world faster. In addition, players can still earn a full scholarship from Arizona State University if they do want a bachelor’s degree later.
