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.
