The French prodigy will be able to enjoy several weeks of rest after an intense year.
Victor Wembanyama will be able to breathe. After an intense year at all levels with Boulogne-Levallois and the Blues, not to mention the pressure that weighed on his shoulders with the prospect of the NBA Draft, the 19-year-old French prodigy is put to rest. He will not participate in San Antonio’s last two games in the Las Vegas Summer League. Information reported by the San Antonio Express News and various other sources on Monday evening. “I know I need to speak with Pop. I will listen to what he is going to say, but I am ready to make any sacrifice for the team and give my 100%“, he said last night, after his second game in Nevada. A much more successful match on an individual basis than the first, with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks. two days before, he had committed a nasty 2/13 on shots, with 9 points, 8 rebounds and still 5 blocks.
First Frenchman chosen as number 1 in the NBA Draft, “Wemby” will now enjoy several weeks of rest. Several months in fact. He will be expected when the San Antonio Spurs open training camp in September, with three pre-season games already scheduled for October 13, 16 and 18, and the start of the season. By then, the Blues will have played the 2023 World Cup in Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines from August 25 to September 10, without him, as we have known for a few weeks.
