Draft Notes

Victor Wembanyama is one of the most intriguing prospects on the NBA horizon, thanks to his sheer size and length. At 7-2+ with a ridiculous 7-8 wingspan he’s rail thin, lanky but super talented.

He stands out on the defensive end, really changing the game with his length in the lane. He’s quick off his feet and covers ground well, making him a lethal weak side shot blocker. This is an area of his game where he clearly knows his role and does his job well.

On offense Victor has the makings of a versatile package, although he’s still very raw. He’s got good shooting form and isn’t afraid to try to stretch out to the 3pt line. He’s actually a very good ball handler considering his size and age and he can create offense on the wing and get his shot, showing flashes that remind of Kristaps Porzingis

Victor seems to lock in and take the game seriously and competes at a high level. This is great to see and gives a lot of hope for his future development as a player.
