Victor Wembanyama Stats: What Makes the Projected No. 1 NBA Pick So Special?

Wembanyama is NBA's Rookie of The Year Favorite at -215

In winning last month’s NBA Draft Lottery, the San Antonio Spurs earned the right to select Victor Wembanyama. The 19-year-old center from France has been heralded as a once-in-a-generation prospect. Standing 7-foot-5, he’s considered the surefire No. 1 pick because of his guard-like ability to create off the dribble, shoot 3-pointers and protect the basket with an 8-foot wingspan. While San Antonio could choose to trade the pick, it’s likely they will build their future around the French star.

Here are some Victor Wembanyama stats you should know ahead of the June 22 NBA Draft.

Victor Wembanyama Stats

Wembanyama has been a stat-stuffer for the Metropolitans 92 of the LNB Pro A in France. He’s averaged 21.6 points, 10.4 rebounds, and 3.0 blocks while shooting 47% from the floor this season. In doing so, Wembanyama became the youngest player ever to win the LNB Pro A MVP Award. He also captured league awards for Best Scorer, Best Defender, Best Young Player, and Best Blocker and was selected to the Pro A All-First Team, proving why he’s such a coveted prospect.

Wembanyama made a brief playing appearance in the U.S. last season, which only added to the hype. He scored 36 and 37 points, respectively, in two exhibition games against the NBA G League Ignite, a developmental team featuring projected top-3 pick Scoot Henderson.

Atop the Oddsboard

Oddsmakers expect Wembanyama to make a quick impact. Wembanyama is a heavy -215 favorite to win NBA Rookie of the Year, well ahead of Henderson (+350).

Behind Henderson is former 7-1 center Chet Holmgren (+450), who is recovering from a Lisfranc injury to his right foot that forced him to miss all last season. Holmgren was selected No. 2 by Oklahoma City in last year’s draft after one season at Gonzaga, where he averaged 14.1 points on 60.7% shooting, 9.9 rebounds, and 3.7 blocks. He is ahead of Alabama forward Brandon Miller (+900).

San Antonio Holds Golden Ticket

At 22-60, San Antonio shared the NBA best odds of winning the lottery alongside Houston and Detroit. If the Spurs were to make the No. 1 pick available via trade, they’d net a king’s ransom. Wembanyama is arguably the most celebrated player to enter the NBA since LeBron James was chosen in 2003. ESPN recently floated a few hypothetical trades surrounding the top pick, one that included Philadelphia shipping MVP center Joel Embiid to the Spurs for the right to select Wembanyama.

Embiid — who averaged a league-leading 33.1 points and 10.2 rebounds in 2022-23, per NBA players stats — isn’t necessarily on the block, but it shows what type of package a team would need to construct to get its hands on Wembanyama.

In reality, there’s almost zero chance San Antonio entertains an offer for the No. 1 pick, let alone trades it. The risk is simply too great. Wembanyama is a franchise-changing talent, with the potential to someday break NBA records.
