Victor Wembanyama on joining Spurs: ‘A dream come true’

Victor Wembanyama joins Scott Van Pelt to discuss being drafted No. 1 by the San Antonio Spurs.

With the 2023 NBA Draft over, we’re just days away from action as summer league approaches.

Top draft picks like Victor Wembanyama, Scoot Henderson and Brandon Miller are expected to make their NBA debuts with their respective teams, while some lesser-known players are vying for a spot in the regular season.

There are three tournaments running through July – the California Classic in Sacramento (July 3 and 5), the Salt Lake City League (July 3, 5 and 6) and the NBA 2K24 League in Las Vegas (July 7 -17 July).

The California Classic features a marquee matchup early as Wembanyama’s San Antonio Spurs take on Miller’s Charlotte Hornets on July 3. The Spurs expect Wembanyama to play this summer, but it is not clear how many times he will play or whether he’ll play in Sacramento, Las Vegas or both.

If Sacramento is after the 7-foot-5 phenom, the Spurs will get another crack at the Hornets on July 7 in Las Vegas. Joining the Spurs and Hornets in Sacramento are the Miami Heat, Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Lakers.

In Salt Lake City, the Utah Jazz will showcase their three first round picks in Taylor Hendricks, Keyonte George and Brice Sensabaugh. Oklahoma City Thunder fans are hoping to get another look at Chet Holmgren, the 2022 No. 2 pick who injured his ankle in last year’s summer league that kept him out for the entire 2022-23 season. The Memphis Grizzlies and Philadelphia 76ers round out the teams playing in Utah.
