Kai Sotto gets NBA Summer League invite from Orlando Magic 

Kai Sotto just got a huge development in his bid to play in the NBA.

The 7-foot-3 Filipino received an invite to play for the Orlando Magic in the NBA Summer League, per reports on Friday, June 23.


The Summer League, where young players like Sotto showcase their talents in hopes of getting signed by an NBA team or at least getting an invite at training camp, is slated from July 7 to 17.

Sotto, 21, worked out with the Magic prior to the 2022 NBA Draft, where no team picked him.

After being undrafted, Sotto played for his second season with the Adelaide 36ers in Australia's National Basketball League.

The Las Piñas native also went to play for the Hiroshima Dragonflies in Japan's B.League.

Sotto then recently joined the mini camps held by the Dallas Mavericks, Utah Jazz, and the New York Knicks with the hopes of making an NBA Summer League team.

Sotto previously said that he will focus on his Gilas Pilipinas duties for the FIBA World Cup after the NBA Summer League.
