French forward/center Victor Wembanyama is expected to be one of the top picks of the 2023 NBA Draft with many putting him as the first overall pick.
At age 18 he already has EuroLeague experience, having played for a French side Asvel last season which competed at the top European competition. Former NBA star Tony Parker, who is a majority owner of the team, thinks that Wembanyama has a great future ahead of him.
“He’s a great human being, great kid, and very talented. That’s why I think every GM in the NBA thinks he will go number one. The sky is the limit,” the four-time NBA champion said, per Landon Buford.
This past season the projected No. 1 draft pick averaged 6.5 points and 3.8 rebounds and 17.3 minutes per game in EuroLeague.
