To get there, the young center wants to spend his summer getting stronger, particularly in his lower body, to help handle a heavier workload next season. And, already one of the league’s most feared rim protectors, Gobert hopes to put a little more fear into opposing defenses next year. The center intends to improve his post game and add some mid-range shooting to his repertoire. He says he’s hitting consistently from about 15-feet right now, and he plans to spend 10 days in Germany with Dirk Nowitzki’s shooting coach later this summer to help fine-tune his form. “I’m more confident,” he said of his offensive game. “Really in the first season and early last season, I wasn’t really trying anything offensively. Now I can really work on my game and try to show it on the floor.”

His subpar, injury-plagued season be damned, Tony Parker joins Boris Diaw and former Spur Nando De Colo among 24 players named to France’s preliminary roster for EuroBasket 2015. France is the defending champion, with Parker having earned MVP honors in leading Les Bleus to their first major title at the 2013 competition. He, Diaw and fellow NBA standouts Nicolas Batum and Rudy Gobert have all pledged their intent to participate with France among four host nations.
