Tonight, 14 NBA teams look to change the fortune of their franchise by winning the No. 1 overall pick of the 2023 NBA Draft. Live from McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, the winner of the draft will likely select Victor Wembanyama with the top pick.

Considerd as the best NBA prospect since LeBron James, Wembanyama, nicknamed “Wemby,” is a 19-year old prospect from France, who is 7’4″ with an 8 feet wingspan. He towers over his opponents and is a dominate shotblocker but offensively, he’s versatile with great ballhandling and a lethal 3-point shot. At 230 pounds, he’ll have to add to his lanky smaller frame to make sure he can holdup over the course of the 82-game regular season.

You can check out the odds of the 14 teams participating in the 2023 NBA Draft Lottery at the bottom of the page. Find out how to watch the 2023 NBA Draft without cable, below.
