France have revealed their final 12-man roster for Eurobasket 2015 with Mouhammadou Jaiteh and Thomas Heurtel the last two to be cut. The European champions will be based in Montpellier and face Russia, Poland, Finland, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Israel in Group A with the co-hosts looking to advance to the second and final rounds, which will be held in Lille. No doubt, the squad that coach Vincent Collet has selected is a strong one, plenty of international and NBA experience, including the 2013 Eurobasket MVP Tony Parker along with Nicholas Batum, Boris Diaw and the promising Rudy Gobert.

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.”
