Victor Wembanyama will know on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday (French time) where he will evolve next season for his big debut in the NBA. The giant of the Mets will follow the lottery in a Parisian place in the company of his relatives and his teammates as part of an evening organized by his equipment supplier.
The event is important enough to put the small dishes in the big ones. So, of course, Victor Wembanyama could have decided to quietly return to his home and discover over a small dish and a drink on his screen the franchise that will have the chance to welcome him for his big NBA debut. But not at all. It is indeed in a Parisian place (located on the Champs Elysées, according to certain noises of corridor) and during an evening organized especially for the phenomenon of Boulogne-Levallois by its equipment supplier (the mark with the comma) that “Wemby » chose to live this night that he is probably not about to forget.
Because the one who is already certain to be number 1 in the next draft, on June 22, will know during the night from Tuesday to Wednesday (probably around 2:30 a.m.) in which jersey he will discover the NBA at the comeback. After the derby scheduled for Tuesday evening at 8:00 p.m. at the Palais des Sports Marcel-Cerdan between his Boulogne-Levallois team and Paris Basket, the local star will therefore take the direction of the capital to reach this famous place, which he wishes to be secret until at the last moment.
“Wemby” alongside all those who matter or have mattered
Only the guests were informed. And they are many. A strong delegation from the Metropolitans will accompany the hero of the day in one of the many shuttles requisitioned for the occasion. Wembanyama’s teammates will be there, as well as his coach Vincent Collet and other staff members. The relatives and the family of the young prodigy of 19 years will also live the verdict in his company.
His agents, the coaches of his debut are announced, in particular those who guided him during his training, carried out on the side of Nanterre, as well as other people who counted in his career. Note that four winners of a contest set up by the NBA will also follow this lottery alongside the star, who should add a new trophy to his personal collection on Wednesday. A few hours after this NBA lottery which will reveal the destination of “Wemby”, the LNB trophy ceremony will take place. The native of Nanterre will certainly live 24 hours of madness.
