After a draft-day trade with the Denver Nuggets, the Utah Jazz acquired center Rudy Gobert, the 27th pick. 

At 7'1", the French international has the potential to become a serious post threat.

While he has the height to create serious mismatches, Gobert has a couple other interesting traits. He has a freakishly long wingspan of 7'9"—the longest in the NBAand a 9'7'' standing reach.

Watch now to hear Gobert talk about the new challenges he faces in the NBA. 

Will Gobert's arm length create problems for the rest of the league? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
