All eyes are on 7-foot-4 French prospect Victor Wembanyama leading up to June’s 2023 NBA draft. The 19-year-old that LeBron James dubbed “a generational talent” captivated basketball fans during a two-game exhibition showcase in October against Scoot Henderson’s G League Ignite.
With 200 NBA scouts and executives in attendance, Wembanyama showed off his full skill set — creating his shot off the dribble, running the fast break, shooting step-back 3s, finishing above the rim and using his 8-foot wingspan to serve as a menace at the rim — cementing his status as the top prospect in basketball over Henderson.
Back in France and with no plans of shutting it down early to prepare for the draft, Wembanyama is slated to play through at least May with French club Metropolitans 92. ESPN has you covered with the latest Wembanyama stats, schedule and updates on the most anticipated draft prospect since James.
