Kai Soto, the 7-2 prospect from the Philippines, became the fourth player to join the G-League select team. Jalen Green, Isaiah Todd, and Daishen Nix were the first three to join.
Kai joined the Skill Factory Development Academy in Atlanta. At 7’2, Soto is tall and thin but has a versatile skill set. Soto can score in the post and handle the ball a little bit. Also, he has good court vision and can shoot beyond the three-point land. He has 9’3 standing reach. With that reach, he will be a capable shot blocker.
The one thing the International prospect must do is get stronger to bang with the physical players in the NBA. Soto must also play with a little more intensity. He is still young, having just turned 18 this past Monday and will have plenty of time to get stronger and work on his craft.
