2013 NBA Draft Prospect Profile Video: Rudy Gobert, Cholet (France) (C)
Rudy Gobert will likely be the first international prospect selected in the 2013 NBA Draft and at 7-foot-1, his potential at the professional level here in the United States is worthy of that projection. Gobert’s stats do not necessary jump off the page, but his 8.3 points and 5.2 rebounds per game for Cholet in France was based on a 22-minute per game average.
Gobert has a wingspan of 7-feet, 9-inches, so he has the ability to be long and intimidating on the defensive end. Gobert spent the past season with Cholet, a member of the French Pro A league, so he is entering the draft field fresh off some solid experience overseas. He was an extra for the French national team prior to the 2012 Olympics, scoring eight points while appearing in two friendly match-ups.
Gobert’s potential in the NBA however, is exactly that. He is a budding prospect that will likely hear his name called within the lottery portion of the first round.
