KRYSTEN PEEK: We are 25 games into the NBA season and more fans will be watching if their team is losing by the end of the year other than winning. Even with Commissioner Adam Silver saying that he will be monitoring tanking closely this season, a handful of teams made moves in the offseason to stand a 14% chance of landing generational type talent, Victor Wembanyama. "Yahoo Sports" takes a look at three teams that are in a good spot to start the season to land the 7'4" French phenom in June.

At number one is the team with the worst record in the NBA, the Orlando Magic. Even after landing the number one pick last year and picking up 6'10" Paolo Banchero, the Magic are struggling to win games, and have six players currently out with injuries. The Magic are 1-9 in the last 10 games, and would love to add Wembanyama with Banchero to get over the rebuild hump.

Up next is the Detroit Pistons, who are currently 6-19. Former number one pick, Cade Cunningham, is sidelined indefinitely with a shin injury, and will most likely undergo surgery this year. There's a lot of youth on this team with Jaden Ivey, Killian Hayes, and Isaiah Stewart, and it's going to be a long season of competing in a tough Eastern Conference without a lot of veterans on the team.

Losing Cunningham this year and possibly adding Wanyama in the pick and roll situation next year would make this painful season for the Pistons all worth it.

And finally, at number three, is the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs went into complete rebuild mode after trading all-star guard Dejounte Murray to the Atlanta Hawks. This young Spurs team started the season off with a bang, going 5-2, but have since cooled, losing 11 out of their last 12 games. The Spurs currently have six players out with injuries, and not only that, but they're without head coach Gregg Popovich, as he's recovering from a minor medical procedure.

It would be poetic for Popovich to start his tenure in San Antonio with a player like Tim Duncan, and possibly end his coaching career with a talent like Wembanyama. We will be monitoring the race to the bottom all season long, and for continual coverage on the draft and all NBA news, keep it right here on "Yahoo Sports."
