MANILA--He is back!
Eighteen-year-old seven-foot-three giant Kai Sotto made his way to the Philippines again ahead of the third window of the FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers.
The wunderkind, tagged as the future of Philippine basketball, arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 in Pasay on Tuesday night as he is set to join Gilas Pilipinas Men in practice.
He announced his arrival on Instagram.
Sotto will first undergo a quarantine, and once cleared, he can quickly go to the Inspire Sports Academy in Calamba to join the Nationals in their bubble training.
He will shore up the Gilas Men frontline looking to stand its ground against naturalized players Ricardo Ratliffe of South Korea and Lester Prosper of Indonesia in the final ACQ window in Doha later this month.
