FILIPINO big man Kai Sotto will take one step closer to his dream of making it to the NBA as he declared on Thursday that he will be joining the 2022 NBA Draft.
After playing a season in the National Basketball League in Australia for the Adelaide 36ers, the 7-foot-3 center said he is hoping for everyone’s support as he takes aim for his ultimate dream.
“I have declared for the 2022 NBA Draft. Please pray for and support me during my quest to fulfill my ultimate dream,” said Sotto on his post on Instagram.

“Thank you, Adelaide! Thank you, Australia! It has been an unforgettable year!” said Sotto.
“To the 36ers Management, my teammates, my coaching staff and my agent Joel Bell, I am a better man and a better professional player than a year ago because you all took me under your wing and challenged and mentored me to live up to expectations,” he added. (JNP)
