Kai Sotto back-to-back top HS baller, EU scouts interested

By Ivan Stewart Saldajeno 

MANILA — Kai Sotto was named the top high school player of the Philippines for the second straight year by the National Basketball Training Center.

As announced on Tuesday, the seven-foot-two center from Ateneo de Manila High School headlined this year’s “NBTC 24”, hailing the best juniors players in the land.

However, just as the current Batang Gilas beanpole solidified his stature as the future of Philippine basketball, four teams from Europe reportedly offered him a contract to join them.

Liga Endesa outfits Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Baskonia, and the Basketball Bundesliga side Alba Berlin, all Euroleague strongholds, have expressed their desire to acquire Sotto.

It was also revealed that Sotto visited various European teams last December. (PNA)
