Embiid to Team USA? Victor Wembanyama’s opinion on the matter.

In recent days Joel Embiid has made official his choice to play for Team USA at the Paris 2024 Olympics. The Sixers center, who has a triple passport, could choose between the U.S., France and his Cameroon. The first two national teams have already qualified for the Games, while Cameroon (with whom Embiid has never played professionally) will have to go through the Pre-Olympics. Embiid’s decision has certainly sparked a number of controversies: despite the fact that the player grew up basketball-wise in the United States (he has lived there since he was 16), many saw it as taking the easy way out.

Victor Wembanyama, who with Embiid would likely have shared the frontcourt had he chosen France, had his say at the end of the scrimmage inside yesterday’s San Antonio Spurs. The talented Frenchman, a first overall call-up in the last draft, cut it short but mostly said he felt sorry for Cameroon.

“I don’t really have an opinion on the matter. I just feel sorry for Cameroon.” Wembanyama said.
