“I wanna start by first congratulating you on everything that you’ve accomplished so far being one of the top rated players in this year’s class, the best young player from Asia, we’re so excited to have you,” Abdur-Rahim said in the message.

“With the pro path team, with the G League, we wanna welcome you to the NBA family. We’re excited to tip your first season off.”

The 18-year-old Sotto made headlines two months ago after choosing to skip college to join the NBA G League’s pathway program, where he joined top US prospect and Fil-American guard Jalen Green.

The 7-foot-2 center hopes to become the first full-blooded Filipino to make it to the NBA.
