The San Antonio Spurs selected Victor Wembanyama with the first overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. It was a no-brainer for the franchise as the French superstar is touted as the biggest prospect since LeBron James.

While the two sides are excited to start their journey together, ESPN's Keyshawn Johnson believes the 19-year-old will eventually play for the Los Angeles Lakers.

"Wembanyama is going to be brought up to speed with the Spurs before he becomes a Laker in the next five years," Johnson said, per Kens5. "So, that's how I am kind of how I am looking at it."

He added: "In the end, he'll have a purple and gold on because you know we target guys. We specifically look for certain guys. That's what we do."
