Kai Sotto to get early taste of action as NBL preseason tourney unfurls in November

Kai Sotto is set to test his mettle early as the Adelaide 36ers will join the National Basketball League (NBL) Blitz, the league's most-awaited preseason tournament featuring all teams, starting from November 13 to 28.



The 36ers will be joined by the Tasmania JackJumpers, New Zealand Breakers, Brisbane Bullets, Perth Wildcats, and the Cairns Taipans with the games taking place in Tasmania.

The remaining teams---Melbourne United, South East Melbourne Phoenix, Sydney Kings, and Illawarra Hawks---will compete across Victoria and New South Wales.

Each team will play at least four games with a points system to determine the overall winner.

The winner is set to take home the coveted Loggins-Bruton Cup, which was named after NBL legends Leroy Loggins and Cal Bruton. Meanwhile, the Most Valuable Player will bag the Ray Borner medal.

Sotto and the Adelaide 36ers will open the regular season on December 3 against the debuting JackJumpers.
