Victor Wembanyama 2023 NBA Draft profile: Can Mavs land best prospect since LeBron?
By Noah Weber
How does Victor Wembanyama fit on the Dallas Mavericks?
Landing Victor Wembanyama would be a dream come true for Dallas. He would fit perfectly next to Luka Doncic as he rebounds at a high level and protects the rim, unlike anyone Doncic has ever played with.
Wembanyama would fit fantastically in Dallas' defense as he can switch in the pick and roll, he blocks everything, and Dallas could rely on him to anchor their defense.
The 7'5 big man can also stretch the floor and would be stellar in the pick and pop. Having one of the smartest players in the league in Doncic by his side would make the Mavericks must-watch television every game. They would be one of the most exciting duos ever and could compete for championships for years to come.
Wembanyama's vision and playmaking would also be utilized in Dallas as there would be shooters around him. If the opposition double-teams him, he could pass out of it to a shooter on the perimeter.
The fit is seamless.
Stay tuned to see where Dallas lands in the 2023 NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night at 7:30 CT on ESPN. The lottery will determine if Dallas gets to keep their pick or not, and if they'll have a chance to jump all the way up to the first pick to draft Wembanyama.
