Most of us knew about Trey Burke coming into the draft, and most of us didn't want to draft him because we thought it would require giving up Burks to do it. A couple of DL shenanigans later, and he's on our team. But anyways, this post isn't meant to create discussion about Burke. This is about the other two players that DL wizarded onto our roster out of essentially nothing: Rudy Gobert and Raul Neto. I wanted to create this post for people to aggregate their thoughts on the two, so please share any information you have about our non-Burke draft picks below.
Rudy Gobert was the tallest player drafted, with some reports having him at 7'2''. Essentially every thing I have read says that he will likely be a great defensive presence with little current offensive game. What else do we know about him? Please share.
Raul Neto is from Brazil and played in a Spanish league, where his numbers didn't look all that impressive to me: ~8 ppg and ~2 apg. Anybody know if he is supposed to be a good defender?
Anyways, thanks for sharing your thoughts on these fellas. I think we are all anxious to know what they can do, and can't wait for summer league and preseason games to find out. GO JAZZ!
