Rudy Gobert NBA Scouting Report

NBA Draft Prospect Rudy Gobert

7,1 - Center - France

Pros

Rapidly improving big man with a high ceiling. Has great length and could add an inch or two before he stops growing. Decent athlete with nice hops. Intelligent defender with good potential as a shot blocker. Changes a lot of shots, even if he doesn't get the block.

Young prospect, born in 1992, who should continue to improve in all aspects of the game. Shows an improving offensive game, including a baby hook shot and ability to back down his man in the post. Still scores mostly within 5 feet and is a terrific dunker and finisher. 

Cons

Still very raw on offense and has a long way to go to reach his potential. Despite adding strength he's still a skinny post player that could struggle against the size and strength in the NBA. Not the most agile big man and will likely struggle against the speed and quickness of NBA players.

Projection: first round pick in the 2013 NBA Draft
