A few days after scoring 32 points against Darussafaka in Istanbul, NBA Draft prospect Victor Wembanyama keeps turning heads with his new club, Metropolitans 92 Boulogne-Levallois.

As the French team made light work of last year's BCL semi-finalists and Israeli league champions Hapoel Holon by 106-88, the 18-year-old boy prodigy scored 34 points on 10/18 from the field and a perfect 13/13 from the charity stripe. He also grabbed 5 rebounds, blocked 4 shots and committed 3 turnovers for a PIR of 33.

Wembanyama scored 13 points in the first quarter alone before adding another 21 in the process.

Four more Boulogne-Levallois players followed him in double-digit scoring, with Devonte Jones finishing with 19 points. For Holon, Kenny Kadji scored 18 points against Wembanyama, while veterans Joe Ragland and Chris Johnson added 16 and 17, respectively.

Wembanyama, who left Villeurbanne ASVEL in the summer, immediately proved his talent at his new club. The Metropolitans 92 Paris rookie produced a monster performance in a friendly match in Istanbul as his club defeated Darussafaka Istanbul 89-79.

He scored 32 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, drew 11 fouls, and accumulated 37 EFF for the winners.

Celtics GM Brad Stevens, spotted at Victor Wembanyama's scrimmage, told the media: "You have to always be ready for not only what’s coming your way this year, but 10 years from now."
