  • Former NBA player Jeremy Lin, 33, gave Filipino athlete Kai Sotto, 20, some solid advice after he went undrafted at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday.
  • “The biggest thing is draft night is just one snapshot in a very long film,” Lin told ESPN during the 2022 NBA Rookie Draft. “And I just hope that he continues to believe in himself, stay confident, keep working hard and just trust that, 'as long as I stay consistent, I will find a home.’"
  • Sotto, who is officially listed as 7 feet and 2 inches in height, had previously worked out with several NBA teams before draft night, including the New York Knicks, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic and the Chicago Bulls, the latter of which had reportedly expressed interest in the Filipino rookie.
