The Spurs have 2 games this week before the No. 1 pick heads to Indianapolis for his Rising Stars and All-Star Saturday Night debuts.
Stay up to date on No. 1 pick Victor Wembanyama during his rookie campaign with the San Antonio Spurs. A new Wemby Watch drops every Sunday during the season. Here’s what we saw this week:
All-Star Weekend awaits
Wembanyama is set to team up with fellow No. 1 draft picks in Magic’s Paolo Banchero and Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards for the 2024 Kia Skills Challenge as part of State Farm All-Star Saturday Night. Team Top Picks will go up against Team Pacers (Tyrese Haliburton, Bennedict Mathurin, Myles Turner) and Team All-Stars (Scottie Barnes, Tyrese Maxey, Trae Young) in the first event of the night.READ MORE
Before that, Wembanyama will participate in the 2024 Panini Rising Stars on Friday night (9 ET, TNT). NBA legend and honorary coach Pau Gasol selected Wembanyama first overall in the Rising Stars Draft last Tuesday.
Wembanyama returned to Barclays Center for the first time since the Spurs selected him with the first overall pick at the 2023 NBA Draft in June. He scored 21 points and grabbed four rebounds after snatching down only one Thursday at Orlando.
The Spurs are three games into their nine-game Rodeo Road Trip. They have stops in Toronto and Dallas this week before the All-Star break arrives next weekend.
