The Spurs won only 22 games last season. However, they got the first pick in the 2023 NBA Draft and selected Victor Wembanyama. San Antonio has won five championships under head coach Gregg Popovich, who has coached David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard. Popovich will now get to coach Wembanyama, who played in two Summer League games in Las Vegas.

Wembanyama put up nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and five blocks while shooting 2-for-13 from the field versus the Hornets but bounced back in a big way against the Portland Trail Blazers, finishing with 27 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks on 9-of-14 shooting overall.
