Victor Wembanyama, who stunned the NBA world in recent days, made the 12-man squad as well.

The projected No. 1 pick in the 2023 NBA draft is set to make his official debut with the men's national team. He was a dominant force at the 2019 U-16 European Championship and 2021 U-19 World Cup.

In the latter competition, Wembanyama averaged 14.0 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 5.7 blocks per game and was named to the all-tournament team after leading France to the silver medal. Wembanyama set the FIBA record for blocks per match in a single tournament.

He recorded 22 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 blocks in a final 83–81 loss to the United States.

French national team will play its World Cup European Qualifiers games against Lithuania away on November 11, and over Bosnia and Herzegovina at home on November 14.

France is currently 2nd in Group K with 6 wins and 2 losses.
