Rudy Gobert et Stephen Curry, All-Stars du Jazz et des Warriors

Rudy Gobert at the Warriors, the rumor swells!

As the Jazz prepare to play a crucial franchise playoff series against Dallas, rumors continue to swirl around Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell. The Frenchman is particularly coveted, and the Golden State track has just been revived by a rather interesting indiscretion…

If the expression “make or break” were to be illustrated in the dictionary, we would probably use the example of Jazz for this 2021-2022 season. If Quin Snyder’s men have had to navigate turbulence in recent weeks, especially on the sounds of dissension concerning Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, the latter could only be tiny compared to those which would occur in the event of a flop in the playoffs.

The series against the Mavericks indeed appears as a make or break, as a defeat in the context of recent weeks would have profound consequences for the Salt Lake City team. Nothing is set in stone, but it is likely that either Gobert or Mitchell, or both, will leave Utah via trade.

Rudy Gobert coveted by Golden State and validated by executives?

Of course, the Jazz hope to silence all the gossip and finally interfere in the NBA Finals, and that’s all the harm we wish Spida and others. But in the event that things turn sour, several suitors are already monitoring Gobert’s case very closely. The French, already tracked by the Mavs and by Toronto, sees his name appear alongside that of the Warriors.

A Western Conference executive thinks the Warriors could try to get Rudy Gobert back this summer.

“If Rudy Gobert becomes available this summer, I think a lot of veteran Warriors players would like the team to give it a shot.”

– Sean Deveney

Beyond the interest shown by the Dubs in the Frenchie, it is interesting to note that according to Sean Deveney, the executives of the Californian locker room would be favorable to the arrival of Gobert. It is obviously in priority of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. We know that the strong winger has a beef with the pivot of the Jazz, but the need for the Warriors to have a dominant big could quickly sweep away these trivialities.

This proves that contrary to what some detractors claim, the rating of Rudy Gobert, three-time All-Star and three-time Defender of the Year, is higher than ever in the NBA. It must be said that his defensive quality and his sense of sacrifice could help almost any team in the league, even the best.

If the Jazz adventure is to come to an end, Rudy Gobert will not lack suitors among the top teams. Dallas, Toronto and now Golden State have each been mentioned in recent days. And it is clear that we can well imagine our French in the Dubs system…
