Kings sophomore forward Skal Labissiere returned to Haiti for the first time since 2010 on Wednesday.
One day later, he reunited with the man who helped save his life. Labissiere was trapped under rubble in a 2010 earthquake. The man and Skal's father searched through debris before finding the talented hooper.

Labissiere is back in his native country to host a basketball camp from July 19-21. In his rookie year, Labissiere averaged 8.8 points and 4.9 rebounds per game in 18.5 minutes per game.
The Kings selected Labissiere out of Kentucky with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.
Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are set to square off in the ring on Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for one of the biggest fights of all time.
To get ready for one of the most hyped up sporting events in years, McGregor needed a little motivation from the 'We Believe' Warriors to come out victorious in an upset.
In a YouTube video showing the highlights of McGregor during his world tour promoting the fight with Mayweather, McGregor rocked a throwback Jason Richardson Warriors jersey. You can see McGregor in the jersey at the 45-seconds mark.
Richardson averaged 18.3 points and 5.4 rebounds over six seasons with the Warriors.
McGregor (21-3 in the UFC) is looking to give Mayweather (49-0) the first loss of his career.
