Victor Wembanyama is the almost certain first overall pick of the next NBA Draft.
The Frenchman confirmed he is a potential crack with two monster performances in as many exhibition matches against the Ignites, the G-League team stuffed with future NBA players.
The attention on him was already very high but now all insiders are talking about an indiscriminate rush to the tanking to try to pick a player who can really change the face of a franchise for the next few years.
Wembanyama, however, is a bargain not only from a technical standpoint but also from the aspect economic. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, in fact, the team that signs him could make grow its brand value by 500 million of dollars. A figure calculated on the basis of the media impact that the player currently playing for the Metropolitans, who is destined to become a world star, is expected to have.
”Victor Wembanyama is the singular, greatest prospect in NBA draft history…The level of tanking we may see in the NBA this year as many teams who may try to get in position, I think it ’s going to impact the trade deadline. ”
