Rudy Gobert said that he's been focused on his "post game and mid-range shot" this offseason. "Those are my two main focuses," Gobert said, in addition to "getting stronger, improving [his] lower-body strength and working on [his] quickness." He hopes to "show even more" offensively now that Gordon Hayward and George Hill left in free agency, and it shouldn't be hard for Gobert to increase his 16.7 percent usage rate from the 2016-17 season.

Jazz GM Dennis Linsey said he's going to build his team around Rudy Gobert following Gordon Hayward's departure. "We feel like we can build defensively around Rudy Gobert," Lindsey said. "We look at him, and he's a top 10 player and unique defender. So we wanted to build a team around his talents." Lindsey added that he wants to showcase Gobert's ability, so the 25-year-old big man seems poised for a career year as the clear franchise player. If he can keep improving from the free throw line, there's no reason why he can't be a top-10 fantasy player -- he shot 65.3 percent from the stripe last season.

Rudy Gobert, Kawhi Leonard and Draymond Green are the finalists for Defensive Player of the Year. These are the only three options here with each having some clear strengths over the others. Gobert is the best rim protector in the league, Kawhi is as good as it gets on the perimeter, and no player is better at team defense than Draymond. This will likely be one of the closest awards on June 26.

Stephen Curry, Isaiah Thomas, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Rudy Gobert were named to the All-NBA second team. The Stifle Tower had a massive breakout year as an elite roll man to go with arguably the best rim protection in the league. Somehow, Gobert didn't make the All-Star team, which is another reason why we can't take All-Star Game voting seriously. If Gobert can put it together at the free throw line, he could reach truly elite fantasy value.

Rudy Gobert announced he will not play with the French national team this summer at the European Basketball Championship. Gobert suffered a minor knee injury in the first round of the 2017 postseason vs. the Clippers and cited that as one of the reasons he declined playing for Team France. "It was a tough decision for me. But there's my recent knee injury in playoffs, the long season, discussions with my club... I need to work on my body this summer," said Gobert.

Rudy Gobert scored 21 points during a 102-91 Game 3 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding 15 rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 39 minutes. He was exceptional at times during this game, but the Warriors simply have too much firepower. Gobert's offensive game has had several bright spots and he's way ahead of the curve as a pick-and-roll player. His passing also probably doesn't get talked about enough either. If Gobert can start to make free throws consistently, his upside is sky high in reality and in fantasy.

Rudy Gobert fouled out in just 13 minutes of play on Sunday, finishing with just one point and four rebounds in Utah's Game 7 win. Gobert was a complete no-show in this one, going 0-of-1 from the field and 1-of-2 from the charity stripe, but Utah still pulled out the win with their suffocating defense. Gobert's bum ankle didn't appear to be much of an issue at all, and now he'll have until Tuesday to rest up for Game 1 against the Warriors, so he should be just fine moving forward.
