Victor Wembanyama is an athletic, skilled center that could be the top pick of the 2023 draft. He is a versatile scorer that excels at making shots from the post, and he also has a reliable mid-range jump shot. He also is a good rebounder and defender, and he is a terrific shot blocker that can lock down the paint.
Recently, he signed on to play for the Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans 92 for the upcoming season. He’ll need to be a more consistent outside shooter in games, but his strong all-around skills could enable him to be a superstar in the NBA.
