NBA G League announcer, Kevin Danna, joined Whitey Gleason and Chris Watkins Friday to discuss Victor Wembanyama’s upcoming Summer League debut and what his game will look like in his rookie season. Plus, Kevin gives his thoughts on some of the Kings two-way players.
All that and more on Chris & Co.
“I think his game is going to translate pretty well [to the NBA],” Danna said on the show Friday. “When he was in Las Vegas, playing G League Ignite, those games in October, NBA rules, NBA court against NBA prospects, most of those guys [were] definitely better than a lot of the competition he faced in France. He combined for 73 points, 15 rebounds, nine blocks and nine three-pointers in two games. So I think with more space on the floor, he’s going to have more room to operate and I think that will help his game.”
Additional topics discussed include:
- How will Wembanyama’s game translate to the NBA?
- What does Wemby have to work on right away?
- What has been the most surprising thing about Victor?
- Who is Wemby getting compared to at a young age?
- Kevin’s thoughts on Neemias Queta and Keon Ellis
