Projected Draft Range: Late lottery to mid-first round
Rudy Gobert generated buzz for himself at last summer's Adidas EUROCAMP and is now considered by many to be the top prospect overseas.
His measurements are unheard of. Gobert stands at 7'2'' and sports an unprecedented 7'9'' wingspan. To put that in perspective, Anthony Davis' and Kevin Durant's wingspans are closer to 7'5''.
With this type of height and length, Gobert covers a ton of ground in every direction.
But what really drive his value are his mobility and athleticism. This isn't some beanpole who just stands in the paint; Gobert can get up and down the floor, fly in for tip-ins, block shots from the weak side and catch off-target passes above the rim.
Gobert isn't exactly featured in his team's offense overseas and isn't projected to be so in the NBA. He's a guy who's going to make plays off the ball as a finisher, rebounder and rim protector.
Gobert is raw in terms of generating his own offense, but his feel, motor and absurd physical attributes should be good for a few easy buckets every game.
The NBA guys love size, length and athleticism, and Gobert has a unique combination of all three. Considering how weak this field is, particularly at the top, Gobert has the potential to crack the lottery with his upside.
