Filipino-blooded prospects Jalen Green and Kai Sotto dropped their position in the latest mock draft of American website Bleacher Report on Thursday.

Pegged to be the third overall on 2021 by some mock draft outlets, Green went down to No.5 on Bleacher Report's Jonathan Wasserman's projection, to head to Oklahoma City Thunder via Houston Rockets.

Sotto, alongside his NBA G League ignite teammates Daishen Nix, Isaiah Todd and Princepal Singh, were not included the list.

Even if ignored multiple times now, Sotto has already said that he doesn't mind the mock drafts that snubs him, and focused on just getting better.

Ignite forward Jonathan Kuminga placed at third, eclipsing Green, with the Washington Wizards forecasted to take the star.

Many analysts and mock drafts like NBA Draft room, ESPN, and Bleacher Report bet on Cade Cunningham of Oklahoma State to be the top overall pick of the year.

Meanwhile, Team Ignite continues to work hard and to get ready on the new G League season. They will test 17 fiery teams to improve and increase their draft stock as the NBA draft approaches.
