Scoot Henderson has declared in recent days that he is aiming for the first call at the 2023 NBA Draft, but there is very little doubt about who will be chosen first in this year’s class. There are even fewer now that Victor Wembanyama, predicted as first overall pick by posting since the beginning of the year, has decided to declare himself eligible for the Draft. This was made official by the French boy himself during a live broadcast on ESPN in recent hours.

Here you can read what the odds are of getting the first call-up for the 14 teams that are not playing the Playoffs, and consequently those of drafteeing Wembanyama. This year the Frenchman has dominated his national championship and also the FIBA windows, in which he was called up by France for the first time. With the Metropolitans92, Wembanyama has so far kept 21.4 points, 9.9 rebounds and 3.1 stoppages in Pro A, leading the team to second place in the standings with 19 wins in 29 games.
