Another day, another highlight-reel-worthy performance from top 2023 NBA draft prospect Victor Wembanyama.
This time, the 18-year-old, 7-foot-4 sensation’s success came at the expense of his former team, ASVEL. Wembanyama, who currently plays for Paris-based Metropolitans 92, came through with a clutch putback dunk with 3.5 seconds left on the clock to defeat his old club 84-83.

His stat line on the day? A humble 15 points, 9 rebounds and 5 blocks in the win.
Wembanyama’s next regular season game is on Jan. 15 at Dijon.
