    New Mock Draft Has Cs Taking Rudy Gobert!

    The star of the measurements portion of this event, as we documented on twitter yesterday, Rudy Gobert put his 7'9 wingspan to good use today. He shut down the paint against the U20 Russian team, finishing with 15 points on 7-8 shooting, 3 rebounds, and 4 steals while providing an incredible defensive presence in 30 minutes of action.

    Finishing a number of lobs from masterful floor general Leo Westermann (more on him tomorrow) and staying active in the passing lanes, Gobert made the most of his terrific physical profile, a big part of why he is among the top international prospects who could factor into either the 2013 or 2014 draft. Possessing impressive mobility for a player standing over 7 feet tall, Gobert's athleticism and impact on both ends of the floor is unmatched in their year's field.

    A 1992-born prospect who won't turn 20 until a few days before the upcoming draft, Gobert got his first significant taste of high-level competition this season, playing rotation minutes for Cholet in France. He shot almost 80% from the field in Pro A, while showing impressive potential as a rebounder and shot blocker. The progress he's made since last season is extremely promising, and he's maturing at a terrific rate.

    The French big man still has a significant amount of work to do to fill out his 231-pound frame, will need to polish his offensive skills, and has to cut down on his foul-rate to keep himself on the floor, but the future is extremely bright for the young center. He's a player we'll be covering in significant detail this coming year, as he has all the talent to demand consideration for lottery status in the 2013 NBA draft.

    olyk or dieng....either one will help right away...Dieng needs work, but has a lot of potential...

    He looks a lot like the center for the Thunder...that's a good thing...(not perk)

    Thanks to talent entering the NBA draft from Europe, draft positions 10 - 20 might prove to be as valuable as picks 1 - 9, a few years down the road (when the players develop)!

    The Cs should draft the player with the biggest upside!

    I wish we could get a real report on how Melo is progressing in the eyes of the Celtics organization...

     

    Its hard to tell if they expect him to contribute next year, will continue to incubate him, or if he is going to be thrown out like JJJ was.

     

    Either way, I hope he works his tail off this summer to be more agile, fluid, better finisher and master the celtics system.

    +1 Best case, Melo becomes a contributer off of the bench next season, and continues to develop from there!
