With videoThe San Antonio Spurs basketball team has finalized the signing of basketball star Victor Wimpanyama. Tottenham was the first choice in the NBA draft and, as expected, selected the 19-year-old French giant who stands 2.20 meters tall.
During the draft, clubs with the lowest performance last season have priority to attract the best players, which should boost competition.
“This is definitely something I’ve dreamed of my whole life. Hearing the NBA commissioner say it makes me want to cry, man,” said Wimpanyama. The NBA has been fascinated by the French teenager for some time, who is considered a huge talent. Wimpanyama comes from a club Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans 92, France.

The San Antonio Spurs finished bottom of the Western Conference last season. The club managed to win only 22 out of 82 matches. However, Wembanyama is already dreaming of the title. “It is difficult to win in this competition. My goal is to learn as much as I can because I ultimately want to win this track.
The Charlotte Hornets, who were allowed to choose second place, chose American Brandon Miller (20). The Portland Trail Blazers, number 3 in the NBA, chose American Scott Henderson (19).
Basketball players will start the new season in the fall. The title last season went to the Denver Nuggets.
