- San Antonio’s newly renamed Frost Bank Center welcomed 13,200 fans for a free admission open scrimmage on Oct. 7 and 17,412 for the No. 1 overall pick’s debut on Friday.
- Wembanyama played point guard for the first time alongside new teammate Jeremy Sochan, who missed Monday’s preseason opener at Oklahoma City due to “general soreness”. The rookie still hasn’t played with third-year veteran Keldon Johnson.
- Wembanyama, a 19-year-old rookie, took the first jab in initiating a Eurostep dunk in the second quarter off a steal and assist from Sochan, and Tre Jones made the smart decision to toss the lob in give-and-go action for a dunk.
- Wembanyama is listed as a power forward, but the Spurs haven’t decided exactly what position he’ll play this season. The coach isn’t even providing any guidance for the rookie on the offensive end.
