NBA Comparison: Shawn Bradley

Strengths: Gobert has an amazing (7-foot-9) wingspan combined with a skinny but athletic frame … Coordination and ability to run the floor are above average for a big man … His agility and reflexes make him a solid athlete, even by NBA standards … He has a reliable hook shot with his right hand plus he has good instinct for the put back ... Shot shows solid touch, giving him nice potential to develop further offensively ... He’s really fast running the floor, and when he has momentum he’s difficult to stop, thanks to his speed and coordination ... His mobility makes him difficult to guard for opposing bigmen, especially in pick and roll situations, often generating mismatches ... His wingspan allows his team to put defensive pressure on opponents …Rim protector. His length disrupts passing lanes and he makes the basket difficult to reach for opposing guard's penetrations ... He has good timing for blocks, thanks to his agility and coordination ... His length makes him a formidable presence in the post and he should be able to develop into a shot blocker / changer / intimidator ... Shows a good body to add weight, and his toughness is also not a big area of concern and should improve along with his strength, over time ...

Weaknesses: He needs to bulk up his upper body, in order to be able to withstand the extra physicality at the NBA level ... Lacks great leaping ability, though his length helps … His shooting range is limited to the painted area, and needs to be expanded … Mostly faces the basket and needs to work on his back to basket moves ... He lacks a jump shot from the midrange and also is predictable and mechanical in his moves, lacking fluidity, even though he’s pretty reliable from the free throw line ... His offensive movements are rather raw, he needs to add confidence to his game, sometimes he seems too stiff and mechanical ... He’s able to take post position effectively but he still lacks a safe and reliable go to post move ... He’s a reliable rebounder but with his physical tools he could be even better ... He has a mild demeanor, sometimes he appears to play with a reduced gear, lacking much competitive fire ... At times, his lack of a great feel for the game becomes apparent as he fails to recognize plays before they develop or doesn't finish off plays with enough aggression ...

Notes: Pronounced "Go-BEAR" ... His performances at the 2012 adidas Eurocamp on the defensive side elevated his status to a potential top 10 pick, and definitely as the top Euro prospect in 2013 NBA draft ... But during the 2012/2013 season his improvements have been quite disappointing with his draft stocks dropping significantly ... His potential is still quite intriguing but his projection is now a mid-late first round ... Averaged 9 points and 6 rebounds this season in French ProA with Cholet.
