Rudy Gobert - C - International

7'1" 20 year old center, apparently has a 7'9" wingspan. His numbers, albeit in limited minutes/sample sizes, are pretty staggering. 8.2 ppg in 21.6 minutes, shooting a staggering 74.2% from the field on 4.4 attempts per game. Seems to be an OK free throw shooter as well, shooting just about 70%. 4.9 rebounds per game given his minutes isn't dominant by any stretch, but isn't a weakness at least. What does look dominant though, is his defensive playmaking. With .8 steals and 1.9 blocks in 21.6 minutes that translates into some very impressive Per 36 numbers. Doesn't seem to have major foul or turnover issues, and I admittedly have not seen him play but there are good things to be said about his athleticisim.

He seems to be a look to be a top 10 pick, supposing he measures out at the combine.

For those that want to read up on him, here's his DraftExpress write-up.

Re: Rudy Gobert - C - International

Is there any site that provides some advanced stats on these Euro guys? Draft Express has some, but what I'm really interested in are his rebounding and block rates per possession. Pace adjusted per 40 is the closest to what I want on DE, but I don't really know what a good stat line looks like; anyway, judging on his last 2 years in the French league he's about a 10 rebound, 3.5 block per 40 pace adjusted. I'm a little worried about his scoring as he probably only scores on put backs, dunks, and FTs, so it's going to be more about how he moves. If he's fluid and can really move around and seems an athlete, I'll want him, but if he's a little lumbering then I wouldn't touch the kid.

From what I read he's athletic, haven't seen him play though.

That's the big thing, and I don't know which it is. It's the difference between the next Tyson Chandler and the next Hasheem Thabeet.

Re: Rudy Gobert - C - International

That first highlight video makes him look like a rich man's Hamed Haddadi, which isn't good because those are supposed to be highlights.
