Kai Sotto is heading back to the Philippines to join the Gilas Under-19 squad’s preparations for the FIBA U19 World Cup later this month.
On Thursday, the 7-foot-2 Sotto, posted a photo -on Instagram- of him with his family at the airport with a caption:
“We are now heading back. See you in a bit Philippines.”
The former Ateneo high school sensation is expected to lead the charge for the Philippines in the FIBA U-19 World Cup slated on June 29 to July 7 in Heraklion, Greece.
His Filipino-Nigerian frontcourt partner AJ Edu - a 6-foot-10 slotman - has also returned to the country three days back for a similar cause.
Sotto has been training in Atlanta for the last couple of months to prepare for his Europe stint - which he hopes would propel him to the NBA.
