Kai Sotto is set to play out his contract with Hiroshima, arriving in Japan on Thursday evening.
Sotto’s agent Tony Ronzone though confirmed that his client is returning to Hiroshima.
The 7-foot-3 Filipino averaged 8.92 points, 6.08 rebounds, and 1.29 blocks in 24 games played last season.
This time around, the Dragonflies have affirmed Sotto that he will get deep minutes for their upcoming campaign.
“He is going to get 25 minutes a night. He is going to get his body stronger,” said Ronzone to CNN Sportsdesk.
“If he gets that, everything else is going to come. His skillset is outstanding, he can shoot, he can rebound, and run the floor. We just got to get him stronger,” the Wasserman executive continued.
“The future for him is bright.”
