Victor Wembaniyama’s NBA Summer League debut Friday night in Las Vegas didn’t fill the stat sheet or light up the highlight reels. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft had nine points, eight rebounds, five blocks and three assists in the San Antonio Spurs’ 76-68 win over the Charlotte Hornets at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. He was 2-for-13 from the field and 1-for-6 from 3-point range.
Wembaniyama has a chance to make another impact on the NBA world when the Spurs play their second Summer League game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday (8 p.m. ET, ESPN2). Scoot Henderson, the No. 3 overall draft pick, is expected to miss his first game against the Houston Rockets on Friday after injuring his shoulder.
Sunday’s Summer League sessions were sold out for the third straight day as NBA fans and celebrities flocked to the desert to watch the highly anticipated first games of the French event. Yahoo Sports is on the ground in Las Vegas and will bring you all the latest news, highlights and more from the second game of the Wambayama.
