Gobert said Tony Parker is considered the father of the French connection to the NBA. The considerable talent to come stateside includes Nicolas Batum, Boris Diaw, former Celtic Mickael Pietrus, and Ian Mahinmi. “There’s always some players coming up,” Gobert said. “A lot of times, I don’t have time to follow up on all of them, they’re already in the NBA. So there’s always some good talent. I think the guys that really helped are Tony Parker and Boris. They gave us a bit of credibility and now scouts all over the world realized there was so much talent. It’s great for France and all the other countries.”
According to one league executive, who requested anonymity and has observed a Pietrus workout in the past few weeks, says the 32-year-old swingman can help a NBA team right now. “You can tell right away that he can still be a productive player,” the executive said. “His movements are crisp and the athleticism is there. It’s all about finding the right fit for him but he definitely belongs in the NBA.”
