Detroit Pistons: Ranking the 8 best young NBA trios to start a franchise with
#4: San Antonio Spurs
- Victor Wembanyama
- Devin Vasell
- Jeremy Sochan
There are likely people who would have the Spurs higher just on the back of Victor Wembanyama and they might be right. Vassell showed he can shoot and score last season, but can he put up those kinds of numbers on a better team?
Sochan may be the wild card here, as he is a do-it-all glue guy already and did make the All-Rookie team last season. But does he have another level or two? If his shot doesn’t come around he’ll be a very good role player.
This will all come down to whether Wembanyama can stay healthy and become the generational prospect that people think he can be. If so, you can put them atop this list, as he has the chance to be the best player on it and a perennial MVP candidate.
#3: Orlando Magic
- Paolo Banchero
- Franz Wagner
- Anthony Black
Banchero was the clear Rookie of the Year and Wagner is already an efficient scorer who does a lot of things that contribute to winning. Wagner needs to be more prolific and efficient from long range, but he quietly put up numbers next to Banchero last season.
The wild card here is Anthony Black, who the Magic selected with the 6th pick. Can he step in right away and run the team? Will he be able to use his size to become an elite defender? Can he shoot or will he be another Michael Carter-Williams? I’ve not seen much of Black, so the book is still out on him, but the other two are already very good.
