French Congolese phenom could be the next great big man in the NBA

The San Antonio Spurs are set to select French Congolese phenom Victor Wembanyama with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. Wembanyama is considered to be the best prospect in the draft, and he has the potential to be a franchise-changing player.

Wembanyama is a 7-foot-4 center with a wingspan of 7-foot-9. He is an elite shot blocker and rebounder, and he has the potential to be a great defender on the perimeter as well. He is also a skilled offensive player, and he has the potential to be a stretch-five who can shoot three-pointers.

The Spurs are a well-run organization with a history of developing young players. They have a good young core in place, and Wembanyama could be the piece that helps them get back to the top of the Western Conference.
