There’s still some mystery about this French “stash’’ pick, but it is San Antonio-esque — a tactic coach Gregg Popovich and general manager R.C. Buford have pulled off with championship success for the Spurs, who visit the Garden Tuesday night. Jackson has yet to comment publicly on Labeyrie, but The Post has learned the sum of the transaction, according to an NBA source, was $1.5 million. New York Post
The Knicks will only say they hope to see Labeyrie play for their summer-league team in Las Vegas in July. His agent, Bouna Ndiaye, told The Post Monday night “It’s 100 percent definite he will.’’ New York Post
Gobert shares the same agent as Labeyrie, and the two played together on the French 20-and-under national team. “He wants to play in the NBA and I know he can, I don’t know if it can be next season, but maybe, yeah,’’ the rookie Gobert said. “I haven’t talked to him about it yet. He’s more of a power forward than center, though. He’s not a center. “He’s athletic and can drive and can shoot. I think he’d like to be in New York. I was happy for him.’’ New York Post
