Jody Genessy reports that Gobert would like to remain with the Jazz and is “hopeful” that his agent and the organization can work out an extension before the season begins.
Gobert was supposed to take a step forward last season but after suffering pretty serious knee injury, Gobert’s lift and explosion was absent for most of the season. He is currently noncommittal about playing for France in the Olympics, but he hopes to make a decision within the next few days. He has taken the time to get his body right and is feeling a lot stronger. Gobert should be 100% by the start of the season and should continue to be an elite shot-blocker and rebounder.
