Victor Wembanyama will improve the Spurs’ offense with his versatility

The Spurs struggled in nearly every facet of offense. Scoring 4.6 fewer points per 100 than the league average, San Antonio couldn’t do much right on this end of the floor. They couldn’t generate much in the pick-and-roll (26th in ball handler PPP, 29th in roll man PPP), didn’t perform much better on off-ball screens (19th in PPP), produced little on spot-ups (25th in PPP), and were anemic in the open court (last in PPP).

When you need to improve just about everything about your offense, it helps to bring in someone who can seemingly do everything on that side of things, and Wembanyama fits that bill.

If you need a score off a post-up, Wembanyama is your guy. Need an off-the-dribble bucket, Wembanyama can get you that. Do you have some nifty pin-down sets? Wembanyama can run them. Open 3s? Wembanyama can hit them. Putbacks? As you’ll see, Wembanyama has that covered, too, even off of his own misses.


Once Wembanyama adjusts to the NBA, he will solve plenty of the Spurs’ problems with his multi-dimensional skillset. Gregg Popovich will find endless ways to use him on offense.
