Stephon Castle is joining the San Antonio Spurs at a very exciting time in the team’s history.

The rookie player was picked by the Spurs on Wednesday night and is ready to get to work right away.

Speaking to SiriusXM NBA Radio, Castle was asked about the idea of playing alongside Rookie of the Year Victor Wembanyama.

“Just to have a teammate like that, it just really gives me a lot of confidence in our future,” Castle said about the French superstar.

Castle will witness Wembanyama’s second season and the vast majority of analysts and fans expect some huge things from the Spurs player.

He had one of the best rookie seasons of all time and proved that he’s a true phenomenon and will likely only get better in the years ahead.

He has already been named Rookie of the Year and now people are expecting him to take a serious run at Defensive Player of the Year next.

Wembanyama is young and needs all the help he can get.

Castle is going to try his hardest but it’ll take some time before he is fully adjusted to playing in the NBA.

Therefore, it’s very possible the Spurs will add more experienced veteran talent in the summer as a way to give Wembanyama the assistance he needs.

Even with all of Wembanyama’s power, the Spurs were in very bad shape last season.

Now their main goal should be improving as much as they can so they can have a fighting chance of returning to the playoffs.

Wembanyama will be the biggest part of that goal but Castle will help too.
