    and thens he gone. Very rare that guys like Duncan and Robinson come along and stay in a small market,,,,,the chances of it happening a 3rd time for San Antonio are very slim. The dude will split for a big market just like Shaq did from Orlando,,,Durant from OKC,,,,LeBron from Cleveland,,, , Kobe almost left a big market for another big market in Chicago and Duncan was dangerously close to leaving for Orlando. Wemby has already served notice to the small market Spurs that he expects to win les immediately. If you dont think it can happen,,,,go ask all those fans in other cities when their generational #1 pick left town,,,,

    I was on vacation in Orlando the day Shaq left. The town was like a morgue.

    Wemby went to his dream team. Tony Parker, Boris Diaw and Bruce Bowen played for the Spurs. He will never leave as long as the Spurs are always trying to win.

    Trying to win and actually winning are two diffent things,,,,Pop cant do right now. Spurs couldnt even keep Kawhi,,,,what makes them think this wonderkid is gonna stick around after 4 years? No chance. Its as close to a sure thing as you can get,,,San Antonio cant compete with LA or New York when they come calling,,,,

    Unless he quits like Leonard he would be stuck in SA for 7 years.
    4 years on the rookie contract, and presumably the Spurs would offer the max which means he would have to sign a minimum 3 year offer sheet with another team, which Spurs get to match.

    But he could certainly quit like the last guy so if he really wants out it could happen.

    Does this mean he would decline 35 million contract and play for 12 qualifying offer?

    Pop just came off his finest season as a coach and developed a great young team to pair with Wembanyama.

    Kawhi wanted to play for the Lakers or the Clippers. If he had been drafted by one of them, he'd have never left. Wembanyama was dying to be a Spur. He will never leave.

    BTW, there is no way anyone is taking seriously someone who separates sentences with a series of commas.

    Iím gonna enjoy the out of these next 7 years. Yes, there is always a risk of flight (there always is), which is why turning around a winner by year 3 should be a top priority

    At 4 years, I’m going to enjoy watching him sign the Super Max extension.

    Wemby is not a spoiled American. The Spurs are the adopted team of France and the likelihood of Wrmby being a Spurs lifer if far greater than him signing a contract to play with the Knicks or Lakers

    Spurs still have to build a winner around him. It's on the front office now to do that.

    He isn't going to stay just because France has Spur fans.

    We have the best development environment for him, so we should be able to keep for for at least 7 years. If he decides he's had enough development time and wants to leave, the spurs can probably trade him for like 2 all stars and 8 first round draft picks. That's the price and we're sticking to it.

    OP a dumbass but what is the Bruce Bowen connection?
    Bruce played in France when he was coming up. Tony Parker was a kid who would come to the games with his dad, who would give Bowen advice and they became friendly. Tony was excited to be drafted by San Antonio because he could play with Bruce. There is a video on EDIT: the NBA app about Bowen that is pretty good. I guess they don't mind saying good things about him now that he is an employee.
