NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
|POSITION: C||FROM: G League|
|HT: 7-2||WT: 210|
|BORN: 5/11/02||YEAR: 02||WING: NA||REACH: NA|
Kai Sotto is taking his talents to the G League, joining Jalen Green, Isaiah Todd and other top prospects in the Professional Pathway Program as they prepare for the 2021 NBA draft.
Exceptionally tall and thin, Sotto is an intriguing prospect who comes from good basketball bloodlines (father Ervin Sotto). He’s been focused on basketball all is life and it shows in his skill level.
Kai has a long ways to go to be NBA ready but he’s someone to keep an eye on over the next year or two as he continues to grow, fills out his frame and develops his skill set. He’ll have to develop his lower body strength and work on his agility and foot-speed to have a chance.
At this stage his great height along with his skill level is impressive and he show’s some flashes of NBA level talent.
