It will be the next step in the 7-foot-2 Sotto’s attempt to be the first homegrown Filipino player in the NBA.
Under the G-League program, Sotto will be playing in a developmental squad alongside consensus top prospect Jalen Green, Isaiah Todd, and Daishen Nix for Southern California.
The squad will be developed and get accustomed to the NBA game while playing against official G-League teams.
Sotto also released his statement on Instagram, saying going this route and foregoing college is the best option for his dream.
