The San Antonio Spurs bagged a jackpot when they got a chance to pick him in the 2023 NBA Draft. The young man is signaling that he can only get better in the coming days.

Thanks to his towering height and long wingspan, Victor is adapting quite well in the NBA which is a positive indication that he will soon rise to his full potential.

Despite not having a dream NBA debut, the French power forward still showed flashes of his immense potential. Wembanyama finished with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists against the Dallas Mavericks on October 25, 2023.

Victor Wembanyama Height At 14

Victor Wembanyama was 6 ft 10 in (2.08 m) at 14 years old. He was playing for the French U16 team at the FIBA European tournament at that age.

Born in January 2004 in the western suburbs of Paris in Le Chesnay, France, Wembanyama grew up in an athletic background. Even at just a young age, he had impressive height.

This may come to many as a surprise but if you glance at his family and their genetic build then it will not be surprising at all. His father Félix, a retired track and field athlete is 6'6" (1.98 m) tall. Meanwhile his mother, Elodie de Fautereau, a former basketball player stands at 6'3" (1.91 m).

While growing up, the Spurs forward also tested his skills in various other sports such as football and judo. However, after hitting puberty which resulted in a rapid increase in his height, he began to play basketball, thanks to his mom, who was a youth team coach.

He began playing for Entente Le Chesnay Versailles at age 7 and when he was ten, he joined Nanterre 92's youth program.

Impressed by Victor's build, a youth club coach Michaël Allard presented him to Nanterre's youth system in 2013.

He then signed a professional contract with Nanterre 92 in 2019 at age 15. Wembanyama has grown remarkably tall and is now one of the tallest players in basketball.

From 6'10" at 14, he grew by 4 inches in just a year and registered as 7'2" at 15.

Wemby Height And Weight In NBA

Victor Wembanyama is listed at 7'4" and 210 pounds on the NBA's official website.

He was listed as 7’2” by FIBA basketball when he competed with France in the Euro under-16 tournament.

The former Mets 92 star plays as a forward/center for NBA side San Antonio Spurs. Wembanyama's exceptional height stemmed from his family's genes since all of them are remarkably tall.

According to the Spurs' official report, the French wonder kid is measured at 7 feet 3 and a half inches to be precise. That measurement was conducted without his shoes so with shoes he would be around 7-foot-4 as stated in the NBA website.

However, Wembanyama, who was 18 in October 2022 when he was in Las Vegas for two exhibition games, said he was 2.21 meters (7-foot-3.5) tall back then. Now, at 19 years old, he is nearly 2.23 meters (7-foot-4) tall, which is half an inch taller than before.

Besides, it is quite normal for teenagers to keep growing, so this increase in height makes sense.

Similarly, several other sites had documented his elevation ranging from 7 ft 2 in to 7 ft 5 in. This is because he appears much taller than other people who are also 7 feet tall when they stand together in photographs.

With that measurement, Wembanyama becomes the second tallest player in the league for the 2023-24 season behind the veteran Houston Rockets star Boban Marjanovic who is 2.24 m tall.

Victor Wembanyama Sister Height

Victor Wembanyama sister Eve Wembanyama has a remarkable height of 6 feet and 1 inch (1.85 m). Eve is a basketball player just like his younger brother Victor.

She is currently committed to playing for Monaco in France. The 21-year-old has also represented the French national basketball team in various tournaments over the years in 3-on-3 basketball.

Eve participated in the under-20 FIBA Women's European Challengers and the U16 FIBA Women's European Championship.

Likewise, in 2020, Eve had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the LDLC ASVEL Feminin club in the prestigious EuroLeague Women League.

Victor Wembanyama Brother Height

Wemby's younger brother Oscar Wembanyama measures 6 foot 7 (2.01 m) in height.

Even though Victor's siblings are taller than most people, when they stand next to Victor, they appear to be of average height, which is not tin he case.

Like Victor and Eve, Oscar also followed in their mother's footsteps becoming a basketball player. He started playing for the Nanterre's U-15 squad in 2020, and it happens to be the same team that Victor played for.

Then in 2022, Oscar joined ASVEL after Victor departed to join Metropolitans 92.

Victor Wembanyama Wingspan

According to ESPN, Victor Wembanyama, 19, has a long wingspan stretching up to 8 feet (2.44 m).

His exceptional wing length might not strike you as intimidating at first glance. However, when is he stands beside a regular-sized person, the true magnitude of his wingspan becomes apparent.

Brian Windhorst, an American sportswriter for ESPN said that Wembanyama is so tall that he can almost touch the basketball hoop while standing on the ground. 

When Victor tries to score by gently tossing the ball, his fingers are really close to the hoop, and he does not even need to jump, Windhorst added. If he just goes up on his tiptoes, he could easily reach and grab the hoop. It is pretty amazing and strange.

A picture of him scoring against the Phoenix Suns recently gathered attention among netizens. The image captured Kevin Durant, known for his impressive 7-foot-5 wingspan, standing beside Wembanyama and highlighting the stark contrast in their sizes.

His 8-foot wingspan puts the 19-year-old third in the record book for the NBA's longest wingspan. Only Taco Fall (8-foot-2) and Manute Bol (8-foot-6) are ahead of him.

Victor Wembanyama Vertical

At 7'4" tall, Victor Wembanyama has been measured with a vertical jump of 32 inches. 

This is an incredible feat for someone of his size and is comparable to some of the greatest vertical jumpers in NBA history.

Even though the French basketball prodigy vertical leap is not considered tremendous, he can jump really fast. As a result, Wembanyama earned the nickname "French Flight" because of his ability to soar high above the net.

For comparison, here are the vertical leaps of some other big names in NBA history:

  • Michael Jordan - 48 inches
  • LeBron James - 44 inches
  • Kobe Bryant - 38 inches
  • Zach LaVine - 46 inches

Wembanyama's impressive vertical puts him in the same league as some of the NBA's greatest athletes. This unique ability not only gives him a competitive edge, but also enhances his defensive prowess by enabling him to block shots with ease.

Moreover, it allows for powerful dunks that showcase his dominance on the court. Additionally, Wembanyama's exceptional rebounding skills are further magnified thanks to his remarkable leaping ability.

Besides, his vertical is just one of many incredible god-gifted abilities he possesses. Victor is also a skilled passer, ball-handler, and scorer.
