2023 Draft Profile - Victor Wembanyama

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - June 21st: "The only question regarding his immediate future is whether hell play in Summer League for the San Antonio Spurs. Hell be the No. 1 overall pick after finishing second in Frances top league in scoring, first in rebounding and shot-blocking and making 54 3s as a 7-foot-5 19-year-old."

Kyle Irving - Sporting News - June 21st: "Wembanyama is a lock for the No. 1 pick, set to follow the footsteps of Hall of Famers like David Robinson and Tim Duncan who landed in San Antonio as the top selection in their respective drafts."

Gary Parrish - CBS Sports - June 20th: "Wembanyama has been described as the most unique, and arguably best, teenage basketball prospect the world has ever seen"

NBA Draft Room - May 16th: "Wemby is the best prospect in a decade and one of the best prospects in the history of this game."

John Fanta - Fox Sports - May 12: "Which would you prefer: A nearly 8-foot wingspan or the ability to handle the ball effectively at the height of 7-foot-4? Wembanyama doesn't have to choose because he checks both of those boxes and so much more."

Tyler Byrum and Chase Hughes - NBC Sports - May 8th: " While speed and power were their calling cards, in Wembanyama's case it's his incredible agility and skill at 7-foot-2. Despite often being the tallest player on the court, he can move and handle the ball like he's a guard."

Bryan Kalbrosky - For the Win - May 5th: "Wembanyama leads all players in the French LNB Pro A in the catch-all metric C-RAM (9.7) this season, per Cerebro Sports. He also ranks No. 1 overall in defensive statistical impact (DSI) as well."

Krysten Peek - Yahoo! Sports - Jan. 30th: "To give an idea of what type of impactful player is hitting the league next season, the last NBA player to average 22-plus points and three-plus blocks per game in a single season was Shaquille O'Neal in 1999-2000."

Tyler Byrum - NBC Sports - Jan. 16: "The 7-foot-2 forward has a flashy perimeter game and the mobility to cover a variety of positions. He's played in the top French league for now three seasons and will be a prospect that is worth tanking for this year."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - Jan. 5th: "He continues to astonish with his ball-handling control and coordinated finishes off drives for a 7'4" big. He'd actually had a few off-games to end December, whether he was missing threes or forcing tougher shots inside the arc."
