Kentucky's Willie Cauley-Stein sported a customized medallion with his three initials interlocked in gold lettering Thursday night at the 2015 NBA draft.

Speaking to the importance of building one's "brand," Cauley-Stein said that he designed the logo personally and made several of the medallions with his friends. 

The Sacramento Kings took Cauley-Stein with the No. 6 pick in the NBA draft. He became the 17th Kentucky player since 2010 to be selected in the first round of the draft.
