Victor Wembanyama's First NBA Home Revealed At Lottery

He's the most heralded NBA prospect since LeBron James 20 years ago. Victor Wembanyama is expected to be a generational player, possessing a combination of skills never seen before in basketball. 

And tonight at the NBA Draft Lottery, the 7'4" French wunderkind learned where he'll begin his NBA career: as a San Antonio Spur.

They have won the lottery, and the right to select Wembanyama with the No. 1 pick in next month's NBA Draft.

The Charlotte Hornets will select second, and the Portland Trail Blazers get the 3rd pick.  

Possessing a combination of point guard ballhandling skills, long-range sharpshooting, and rim protection with the size of the tallest centers ever to play the game, the 19-year-old Wembanyama is expected to make the Spurs an almost immediate contender. 

Adrian Wojnarowski called him tonight, "the greatest draft prospect ever in the NBA," and that he could be "the best player in the league, on both the offensive and defensive ends, by his 3rd season in the NBA."

Perhaps the greatest head coach in NBA history, Gregg Popovich, will get to coach perhaps the greatest prospect in NBA history. Very fitting.
