Kai Sotto Lashes Out After Will Navarro Disallowed To Play In Korea

MANILA, Philippines—Kai Sotto couldn’t hide his frustration after Gilas Pilipinas teammate William Navarro failed to get clearance from the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) to play for Seoul Samsung in the Korean Basketball League.

The 7-foot-3 center on Sunday rallied behind Navarro, who signed with Seoul last July.

“I’m sorry but this is crazy. THIS HAS TO STOP. You got players who’ve been working hard and dreaming to play basketball at the highest level they can reach and we got our own people stopping us from achieving greatness,” wrote the 20-year-old Sotto, who is in his second season with the Adelaide 36ers in Australia’s National Basketball League.
