Victor Wembanyama and his family were pleased with the outcome when the San Antonio Spurs won the lottery.
"My heart's beating [fast]," Wembanyama said after he learned of his destination. "I've got everyone I know, everyone I love around me. It's a really special moment I'm going to remember the rest of my life."
Wembanyama discussed the connection the country of France has with the Spurs due to the career of Tony Parker, as well as Boris Diaw.
Wembanyama hopes to have instant success with the Spurs.
"I'm trying to win a ring ASAP," he said. "So get ready."
