Kai Sotto is an tall, agile big man that could project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA. He can rebound and block shots, and he will look to protect the paint to help his team defensively. He also has some post up skills due to possessing deft footwork and shooting touch in the paint, but he will need extend his range and improve his ability to knock down shots when he is further away from the basket. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
