Rudy Gobert

Gobert, I think all Jazz finds would agree on, needs to see the court more than he does. He came into this league extremely raw in this his rookie season. However, everytime he sees the court, he improves.

Gobert is long and is a fantastic rebounder. He has played in 17 games this season for the Jazz. In those games, he is averaging about 10 minutes per game, and in 10 minutes, he is pulling down 5 rebounds!

Gobert was sent down to the D-League to play with the Bakersfield Jam to see some playing time. He appeared and started in 3 games for the Jam, and in those 3 games averaged 14 points, 13 rebounds, and 4 blocks per game.

Gobert is freakishly tall and long. He is raw, but is improving everytime he plays. The Jazz need to find a way to get him on the court, but the problem they have, as they did in seasons past, is they have a lot of big men on the team that probably deserve to play too. Hopefully Gobert sees some more minutes later on.

Grade : C +
