MANILA, Philippines—Kai Sotto is already one tall specimen, but at 18 years old he still continues to grow.

G League Ignite’s lanky center took to Twitter to post updates on his preposterous height, revealing that he’s grown a few more inches.


Sotto’s Fiba profile for the 2019 U19 World Cup listed him at 7-foot-1 but his latest measurement has him now at 7-foot-3 with an arm span of 7-foot-5.

“Continue to watch me work,” posted Sotto on Twitter Thursday.

Sotto along with his teammates in G League Ignite are set to play at Walt Disney World Resort in February for the 2021 G League season.

Ignite is the NBA’s preps-to-pro program that allows high school players to forego collegiate basketball and instead jump to developmental before heading into the league.

Though they’re skipping collegiate basketball, the high schoolers who join Ignite will still receive a full scholarship to join Arizona State University for their education.
