Spurs Officially Sign Victor Wembanyama

The Spurs have officially signed 2023 No. 1 overall pick Victor Wembanyama, the team announced in a press release.

While the terms of the contract were not disclosed, Wembanyama will have a $12,160,680 salary in 2023/24, which is the maximum he can receive in the first year of his rookie scale contract. As with all first-round picks, San Antonio will hold team options in years three and four.

Wembanyama, a 7’3″ big man, was MVP and Defensive Player of the Year of the LNB Pro A, France’s top basketball league. He averaged 21.6 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 3.0 blocks in 34 games last season (32.1 minutes per contest).

The 19-year-old is widely considered to be the best NBA prospect since LeBron James was selected first overall 20 years ago. Wembanyama will participate in Summer League with the Spurs later this month, per the team.
