Kentucky Wildcats: Rob Dillingham is getting serious about potentially playing alongside Victor Wembanyama

The Kentucky Wildcats have a reputation for producing great NBA players, and Rob Dillingham could become the next big thing in the league out of Lexington. Dillingham is expected to enter the 2024 NBA Draft early next month, meaning the chances of the San Antonio Spurs landing the former Wildcats star are significantly high.

When asked about last year’s top pick Victor Wembanyama and his thoughts on potentially playing with the French unicorn, Dillingham seemed very welcome at the idea of ​​him and Wemby working together on the pitch.

Via Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News:

“That was the craziest first year in a long time,” Dillingham said of Wembanyama’s historic numbers. “He could be one of the best players ever. When I play with Wemby it’s clear: I come in to give Wemby the ball.”

The Spurs could look to land an elite point guard in the upcoming draft, as this has been a weak position for the team in the 2023-24 NBA season. San Antonio tried experimenting with using Jeremy Sochan as a point guard, but it didn’t seem to work out too well. Someone like Dillingham could provide a permanent solution for the Spurs, who went just 22-60 in Wembanyama’s first season in the NBA.

In his lone season with the Wildcats, Dillingham averaged 15.2 points, 3.9 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game while shooting 47.5 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from deep.
