French big man Victor Wembanayama says he looks forward to further establishing himself as a favorite to be selected first in next year’s NBA Draft.
“What matters to me this season is above all to consolidate a place as a possible No. 1 pick in the Draft,” Wembanyama said during the Media Day ahead of the 2022-23 French League per BasketSession. “That’s my goal, rather than trying to put on 15 kilos and take risks. I want to strengthen myself, but above all to move towards a favorable situation for the NBA.”
