Houston is the big winner of the Wembanyama sweepstakes in this scenario. If they win the lottery, they are an intriguing Wembanyama team.
Adding him alongside recent draft picks Jalen Green, Jabari Smith Jr. and Alperen Sengun makes potentially the best young core in the league. Well, adding Wembanyama to any young core may instantly bring them to the top, which is why we’ve seen an epic race to the bottom of the standings in recent weeks.
There isn’t much discussion for the no. 1 overall pick this year, as Wembanyama immediately brings a generational talent to any team that’s lucky enough to call his name on draft night.
