The Filipino teenager joined the 2022 NBA Rookie Draft after a solid campaign with the Adelaide 36ers in Australia's National Basketball League, where he averaged 7.6 points and 4.5 rebounds in 15.2 minutes per contest.

ESPN has Sotto at 100 in their list of top 100 NBA Draft prospects, and his name has yet to show up on most mock drafts. 

Sotto has until June 13 to withdraw from the draft, which is set for June 23 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
