NBA 2023 Draft

2023 NBA Draft Notes

  Victor Wembanyama poses for photos with NBA commissioner Adam Silver after being selected first by the San Antonio Spurs. Highlights:  The highly anticipated 2023 NBA draft is finally here. The San Antonio Spurs have had little to think about since they won the NBA draft lottery in May. The Spurs took France center and generational prospect Victor Wembanyama with the top overall pick. There was no suspense or subterfuge involving the pick. Whoever won the draft lottery had Wembanyama No. 1 on the draft board. The 7-foot, 4-inch phenom is on his way to play for Hall of Fame coach Gregg Popovich. Wembanyama should rejuvenate a franchise that won four NBA titles from 1999-2014 and that has a history of turning international players into stars and champions.

No. 2 Charlotte Hornets, Brandon Miller Alabama – The national freshman of the year brings length to Charlotte, and becomes another exciting young piece for the Hornets.

No. 3 Portland Trail Blazers, Scoot Henderson, G League Ignite – If it weren’t for Wembanyama, Henderson had all the capabilities of being the first overall pick. The first player to sign with the G League Ignite for two seasons, Henderson is explosive with the ball and can shake off defenders at will.
