Chicago (USA) – The representatives of San Antonio will have the right to the first pick in this year’s NBA basketball draft and are expected to reach for the 19-year-old French super talent Victor Wembanyama. The Spurs, who lost 60 games this season, won the lottery in Chicago on Tuesday and will receive the No. 1 pick for the third time.

In both previous cases, San Antonio had the lucky hand. In 1987, it chose David Robinson, ten years later, Tim Duncan. Both were the mainstays of the team that led the NBA under the leadership of coach Gregg Popovich. Robinson won two titles, Duncan five.

Charlotte will be second in the draft on June 22, followed by Portland, Houston and Detroit.

According to the American television station ESPN, Wembanyama is the most anticipated player in the draft since 2003, when it was LeBron James. “I want a ring as soon as possible, get ready,” the 221 cm tall player of France’s Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans told ESPN after the lottery.
