Victor Wenbanyama has officially joined the San Antonio Spurs.

After years of anticipation, the French prodigy entered the NBA Thursday night as the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft. As was widely expected, the Spurs named the 7-foot-4 center, but he is expected to switch positions and bring San Antonio back from the draw to NBA fame.

Wenbanyama will follow in the footsteps of fellow #1 overall picks David Robinson and Tim Duncan in San Antonio. The two players teamed up to lead the Spurs to five-time NBA championships and were inducted into the Hall of Fame. Spurs fans won’t have to wait long to see him. Head coach Gregg Popovich confirmed Wenbanyama will play in a summer league game after being nominated.

“We are discussing what he should do,” Popovich told reporters. … “He’s going to be in Summer League. To what extent is yet to be seen.”

The Hornets acquired Alabama’s Brandon Miller with the No. 2 pick, picking a 6-9 forward over G League Ignite guard Scoot Henderson. The Portland Trail Blazers then jumped at the chance to draft a player widely regarded as the No. 2 pick in the draft, picking Henderson with the No. 3 pick.
