The French center scored 37 points, hitting 7 three-pointers in 11 tries, grabbing 4 rebounds, and dishing out 5 blocks.

The two future top picks will meet again this evening. Prior to the match, Wembanyama attended a press conference where he briefly talked about his time with LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne and more notably his relationship with the club's owner Tony Parker.

"I've spent some time with Tony outside of basketball just talking about some random stuff," the prospect said.

"He was like a mentor back when I was with ASVEL but he didn't want to disrupt me by being too present in my life," the player continued. "That made every moment and every [piece of] advice he gave me precious."
