Position: C
Age: 18
Height: 218 cm

"Projected No. 1 pick Victor Wembanyama is a household name amongst draft die-hards by now," Givony notes.

"A prospect I've been evaluating closely since he was 13, the 7-3 phenom with a never-ending wingspan and rare skill level for his size does everything on both ends, and has already proven himself against this year's projected top pick Holmgren last summer on the FIBA circuit, going for 22 points, 8 boards and 8 blocks in a narrow loss to the United States."

Wembanyama has appeared in six EuroLeague games for LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne this season. The 17-year-old is averaging 4.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks over 12.5 minutes.

The 2.20 m big man is accumulating 6.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in the French LNB Pro A league.
