Ironically, the one player who did the most to help his draft stock at adidas EUROCAMP was not an actual individual participant but part of the French U20 national team that was invited to compete. Rudy Gobert (’92) has created a huge buzz around himself after the camp, which has seen well respected NBA draft website Draft Express bump him into the top 5 of their 2013 mock draft.

Measured at the camp at over 7’0″ without shoes, and owning a ridiculous 7’9″ wingspan , Gobert controlled the paint in both games for France U20, as well as finishing a number of plays around the rim with powerful dunks.
He has improved drastically since we first saw him at Future Stars in 2010 (check him out in a short couple of clips from our Top 10) and for a guy to be that size with that sort of mobility – the sky is the limit! Check the highlights!
