Victor Wembanyama wows in Metropolitans’ blowout win as the 16-year-old strengthens his position as potential 2023 top NBA Draft pick ahead of battle with No. 2 prospect Scoot Henderson

Victor Wembanyama has already been drawing attention from scouts all over the NBA and he did nothing to dispel the hype around him during his game against Pau-Orthez.

The 16-year old 7-4 prospect who plays for Metroplitans 92 finished the game, which his team won easily, with 10 points, eight rebounds, three assist, and three blocks, in only 20 minutes.

Along with filling out the stat sheet, Wembanyama reminded everyone watching why NBA scouts are drooling over his potential.

More eyes will be on Wembanyama when he suits up in Las Vegas on October 4 in Las Vegas to play the G League Ignite.

The two team’s agreed to play each other in two preseason games as the Ignite prepare for the NBA G league season.

The Ignite will feature the player widely-believed to be the second best prospect in the draft – Scoot Henderson.

Henderson posted a 58 percent true shooting percentage while averaging 14.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game playing with the Ignite last season as a 17-year-old.

The former five-star recruit not only put up productive numbers but also proved he was a crafty guard who can control the pace, unraveling slow and methodical breakdowns on the perimeter on one hand yet having the burst and blow-by ability to scoot past defenders as well.

If Henderson can improve on his 17.4 percent shooting from three point range, he may have a chance of wrestling the No. 1 overall pick away from the highly acclaimed Wembanyama.
