The coach of the Blues wants to be re***uring about a participation of “Wemby” in the World Cup.
Victor Wembanyama at the 2023 World Cup? The 19-year-old prodigy will be drafted next June and is therefore preparing to discover the NBA. A calendar which is not necessarily favorable to its participation in the summer deadlines of the France team, in Indonesia, the Philippines and Japan. Except that the Boulogne-Levallois player has already expressed his desire to be part of it. He said so at his first rally in the fall. And again at the beginning of the year.
All the lights are green. Especially since Vincent Collet reminds us that it is not necessarily the clubs that have the last word… “It is not so simple. It is not the clubs that decide completely. It depends who you are“, mischievously slips the coach of the Blues, who is also the coach of”Wembyat the Mets 92. Collet also remembers that “it’s always what Tony Parker said at the time: the Spurs never prevented him from coming to the France team. It depends a lot on your status when you are a young player. It’s even more complex because there’s a long journey between the draft and the start of the NBA season. There’s the Summerleague where the top-ranked players only make an appearance but you have to go there, get your bearings with the franchise“, he notes again. And to conclude:It will indeed require real collaboration with all parties. But for now, he is very motivated to participate. There is some good news.»
From the height of his 2.21m, Wembanyama is announced as a future very great player. There is already little doubt that he will be chosen in first place in the Draft 2023, on June 22 in New York. It is on May 16, during the Lottery, that we will know which team will have the right to draw first. His fourth club after Nantes, Asvel and Boulogne.
