Victor Wembanyama plans to play for France in the 2024 Olympics in Paris. But Wembanyama has a loftier goal than simply playing in the Olympics.
“You know the Olympics are in Paris in 2024,” Wembanyama told a French journalist. “And there could be no more perfect occasion for me to win my first title with the French national team.”
“My goal,” Wembanyama added, “is to beat Team USA in the final.”
Before then, Wembanyama will complete his rookie season in the NBA. The 7-foot-4 big man will likely do so as a member of the San Antonio Spurs, who landed the first overall pick in the NBA Draft Lottery.
