Presumed first draft pick Victor Wembanyama helped his side to victory in the LNB Pro A semi-final against his former side ASVEL on Sunday.
The 7-foot-4 phenom had 15 points, eight rebounds, two assists, five blocks and a steam in the Metropolitans’ 92 71-69 win.
Wembanyama was playing for ASVEL, a team currently coached by Basketball Hall of Fame-bound Tony Parker.
Parker and Wembanyama are set to have more in common than a homeland and affiliation with ASVEL – as the young Frenchman will likely head to Parker’s former side, the San Antonio Spurs.
San Antonio won the NBA draft lottery last month, giving them the first overall pick and the first shot at selecting Wembanyama.
