Regardless of what height Kai Sotto will stop at, he has been hard at work with his G League teammates in beefing up his body to support his massive reach

Filipino wunderkind Kai Sotto just keeps on growing with no end yet in sight.

The 18-year-old NBA G League prospect shared on social media that his new listed height is now 7-foot-3 with a 7-foot-5 wingspan as of Thursday, January 14.

This is well within his father Ervin’s projection that his son will reach 7-foot-6 at max height, according to a previous report by the Olympic Channel.

Regardless of what height Sotto will stop at, he has been hard at work with his G League teammates in beefing up his body to support his massive reach.

And now, the former UAAP high school MVP will be put to the ultimate test as the new G League season with an 18-team field finally tips off this February 8 at the Disney World bubble in Orlando, Florida.

Sotto will be joined by fellow Filipino star Jalen Green, other top prospects Daishen Nix, Isaiah Todd, Jonathan Kuminga, and veteran mentors like Amir Johnson, Reggie Hearn, and Bobby Brown.

The teenage tower initially committed to join Gilas Pilipinas for the third window of the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers, but is now forced to opt out due to the G League finally getting the green light to resume operations. – Rappler.com
