HoopsHype Rudy Gobert rumors


November 20, 2013 Updates

The biggest NBA prospect in the country has been developing in relative obscurity with the UC Irvine Anteaters, but if Mamadou Ndiaye continues to play like he did in Thursday's upset win over the Washington Huskies, he'll soon be a household name. At 7-foot-6, the freshman from Senegal is believed to be the tallest player currently active in the U.S. He dwarfs Rudy Gobert, the Utah Jazz rookie who was drafted in the first round largely on the strength of his size. Gobert, who is listed at 7-2, recorded a record 7-8.5 wingspan at last spring's NBA Draft Combine. Ndiaye blows that away -- his wingspan was measured at an incredible 8-1 at the 2012 Amar'e Stoudemire Skills Academy. ESPN.com

The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has signed 2013 first-round draft pick Rudy Gobert (27th overall). Per team policy, terms of the deals were not released. The 21-year-old center is expected to participate in the Jazz’s entry in the 2013 Orlando Pro Summer League, which begins on Sunday. The Jazz acquired the draft rights to Gobert in a draft-night trade with Denver that sent the Nuggets the rights to the 46th overall pick and cash considerations. NBA.com
