NBA Draft: Big man Rudy Gobert talks with SixersPosted by Inside Hoops
Rudy Gobert was the biggest prospect at the NBA draft combine.
The center from France stands 7 foot 1/2 in his socks and 7-2 in his sneakers. He has an incredible 7-81/2 wingspan and massive hands.
Yet the 20-year-old is a raw talent. He needs to get stronger and polish up his post game in order to contribute in the NBA.
However, his athleticism and size are why he’s projected to be a mid-first-round pick in June’s draft. The 76ers, who are likely to get the 11th pick, interviewed Gobert here on Friday.
