Rudy Gobert
« on: November 02, 2012, 02:42:48 PM »
Its not going to happen because when its all said and done this kid goes top 3 but he would be amazing as the Cs center of the future.

7'1 with a 7'9 wingspan and PF mobility. Reading about him and watching his games on youtube he looks to be a long version of tyson chandler. If sully is our PF of the future this kid fits perfect next to him. Not to mention he is an easy lob target for Rondo.

Jesus, wow, that is a long wingspan. I don't think I have ever seen a seven footer (7-1 too) with a wingspan 8 inches longer than his height before. Wow.

it's still to be seen how this kid is going to evolve... but this summer I watched him abusing spanish junior national team... He's really fast and fluid for such a big kid. Spanish kids are good, we have a lot of talented prospects, but they had no answer for him.

Hopefully he can develop into a starter-type big man, maybe better. He's been compared to Ajinca, but IMO he's a more talented prospect.

It'll be hard to get him, but I'm rooting for him to go to the NBA and make a name for himself.

It's like a taller bismack
I saw a pic of him holding onto the back board while standing, and I think (happy to be corrected) his standing reach is 9-6
Just wow

I've seen some videos of him. I gotta say, his size and wingspan, combined with his mobility alone makes him at least a top 15 pick already. So, the only way to pick him up is moving up the draft or be, and I don't want this, a bad team.

This is just me though, I'm not seeing hops on this kid.

It's always so hard to tell with these super skinny guys.

Some of them come to the NBA and look great immediately -- Anthony Davis and John Henson being a couple of recent examples.

Some others have a lot of potential but just can't seem to stick, whether it's work ethic or just not having an NBA body -- Anthony Randolph, Chris Johnson, Jarvis Varnado, and probably JaJaun Johnson.

Anyone have an update on Gobert? I hear he hasn't exactly been lighting the world on fire recently.

Im not as high on him as I was last year but I did find an interesting statistical comparison.

Gobert @ 20 playing for Cholet

Euro cup       3 games 10min 5pts 85% FG 2RB 1blk 1.7PF
French league 23 gaems 22min 8pts 75% FG 5RB 1.8blk 2 PF
french per 40                15pts       9RB  3.2blk


Kevin Seraphin @ 20 playing for Cholet

Euro cup       6 games 20min 6.5pts 51% FG 6.5RB 1blk 2.8PF
French league 29 games 15min 6 pts  52% FG 4 RB  1blk 2 PF
french per 40                16pts         10rb  2.2blk


Seraphin is currently 23 and averaging 9pts 4rb 1blk a game for the wizards. While not the freak Gobert is Seraphin is also a long player at 6' with 7'3 wingspan and 9'1" standing reach.

At the very least the above comparison shows how a solid rotation nba big (seraphin) performed at the same age against the same level of talent as Gobert.

No thanks.

Just too stiff. Ok quickness and athleticism only.  Plus doesn't have great strength. Feel for game and skills only avg.

Not saying he wouldn't be an ok pick, but only if you have time to burn. Will be a project and we already have one in melo.

We need a ready to make an impact next year pick or else someone who if we wait for a year , will be likely very good in the nba. Like Giannis or Saric.
Surprising players happen all the time -- that's why they're called surprises.
