In a recurring pattern, Kai Sotto, the promising Filipino basketball prospect, found himself on the bench once again as his team, the Orlando Magic, suffered an 80-82 overtime loss to the New York Knicks in the NBA Summer League.

The game took place at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on Thursday, July 13 (Manila time).

Looking ahead, Sotto and the Magic are set to play against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday, July 14. The 7-foot-3 center eagerly anticipates his long-awaited debut in the preseason league.

Unfortunately, the Magic have yet to secure a victory in the Summer League, having previously lost to the Detroit Pistons and the Indiana Pacers.
