While the Thompson brothers made history, Cam Whitmore slid, and Keyontae Johnson was selected in Round 2, Victor Wembanyama officially became a Spur.

After years of speculation, the French sensation was selected first overall in the NBA Draft on Thursday night. The Spurs selected the 7-foot-4 center, who is expected to alter the position and lead San Antonio back to NBA prominence after being selected in the lottery.

Wembanyama follows in the footsteps of fellow No. 1 overall picks David Robinson and Tim Duncan, who both went on to Hall of Fame careers while leading the Spurs to five NBA titles.

Fans of the Spurs will not have to wait long to see him. Wembanyama will participate Summer League games, according to head coach Gregg Popovich.

“We’re talking about what he should be doing moving forward,” Popovich told reporters. … “He will participate in the Summer League. To what degree, we’re not sure yet.”

The Hornets selected Alabama’s Brandon Miller with the No. 2 pick, above G League Ignite guard Scoot Henderson. The Portland Trail Blazers immediately seized on the opportunity to choose Henderson at No. 3, largely regarded as the draft’s second-best player.
