    KAI Sotto has reaffirmed his commitment to the Philippine team on Tuesday, saying he will be playing for Gilas Pilipinas in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in June as well as in the Fiba Asia Cup later in the year.

    The 7-foot-3 teen prospect made the commitment in a roundtable discussion with select media arranged by Smart and East West Private, just moments after it was leaked that he will be taking his act Down Under.


    "I'd like to announce that I'm very excited and very honored to be joining Gilas national team that will be playing in OQT and Fiba Asia Cup," the former Ateneo Blue Eaglets star told mediamen in the online interview.
