‘Filipino Connection’ Jalen Green recruits Kai Sotto to G-League
Fil-Am Jalen Green made some waves in the basketball world when he became the first-ever recruit to take his talents NBA G League.
But did you know that he also asked fellow Filipino talent Kai Sotto to join him in the developmental league?
According to Kentucky Sports Radio, one of Sotto’s factor in his decision to enter the developmental league instead of heading ton college is because of Green’s recommendation to be his teammate in G-League.
“Jalen Green – a consensus top-three prospect in the senior class, who signed with the G League’s new NBA pathway program back in April – hand-picked Sotto to join him on the roster,” according to the report.
Green and Sotto had a memorable matchup in 2018 National Basketball Training Center Finals in Manila, where the fans remembered the former for dunking over the 7-foot-2 Sotto.
