NBA Summer League to take place during Gilas overseas camp

Kai Sotto is set to face a dilemma after his stint with Hiroshima in the B.League.

The National Basketball Association announced on Wednesday that the Las Vegas Summer League will take place from July 7 to 17.

All 30 NBA teams will field a squad to see who are the prospects they can add to their preseason team.

Sotto’s management has emphasized that numerous teams are interested in bringing their client in for the 11-day tournament to see him up close.

Joel Bell, Sotto’s previous manager, did not let the 7-foot-3 Filipino join the Summer League last year.2023-FIBA-World-Cup-Asian-Qualifiers-Gilas-vs-Saudi-Arabia-Kai-Sotto NBA Summer League to take place during Gilas overseas camp Basketball News  - philippine sports news

The schedule of the Summer League is right smack during Gilas’ overseas camp in preparation for the 2023 FIBA World Cup.

Program director and head coach Chot Reyes stressed after Gilas’ loss to Jordan that no one is exempted from not attending the camp.

“You can’t just come and show up and be on the team right? Doesn’t matter who you are. You have to be able to be part of the preparation. So, that’s part of it. It’s not just being available two weeks before or all that. It’s not going to happen,” he said.

“The plan is we are going to be out June to middle of July. We have to put in the preparation time.”

If Gilas sticks to this rule, Sotto might not be part of the Philippine team in the global meet this August.
