The Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets, and San Antonio Spurs had the highest chance of winning the No. 1 pick, with each team having a 14% probability of winning. And all the basketball gods smiled at Spurs, who won probably the most historic NBA lottery to date.

San Antonio has the opportunity to select Victor Wembanyama in the upcoming NBA draft. Wembanyama is regarded as one of the most talented prospects in the league’s history. Last season, the Spurs’ record was one of the worst in the NBA, with only 22 wins. Therefore, they need a guy like Wembanyama.

But how will Victor Wembanyama fit into the Spurs rotation?

The expected lineup for the team consists of Tre Jones as the point guard, Devin Vassell as the shooting guard, Keldon Johnson as the small forward, Jeremy Sochan as the power forward, and Wembanyama as the center. Wembanyama is likely to be a starter right from the beginning.

The San Antonio Spurs have had successful outcomes with their last two first-overall draft picks, as they acquired David Robinson and Tim Duncan. The performance of the following number-one overall pick is uncertain and can only be determined with time. However, there are high expectations for his success.
