In a move that has been expected since the moment they won the draft lottery last month, the Spurs have officially used the first overall pick in the 2023 NBA draft to select French big man Victor Wembanyama.

Wembanyama, 19, is widely considered to be the best NBA prospect since LeBron James entered the league 20 years ago.

The 7’5″ phenom averaged 21.6 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 3.0 blocks per game in 34 appearances (32.1 MPG) for the Metropolitans 92 in France’s top league (LNB Pro A) in 2022/23, becoming the youngest MVP in LNB history and cementing his place atop this year’s NBA draft class.
