Jazz beat writer Jody Genessy passed along a report from French publication L’Equipe indicating Rudy Gobert’s agent is in Utah for contract extension talks.
“If what they have in mind is close to what we hope, this could go real fast,” said his agent. It’s hard to make out what that means but the only issue standing between he and a green light on max money is his knee. Gobert didn’t look like himself last season and it also looked like he bulked up a bit too much. If the Jazz are comfortable with the knee, extending him is a strong idea before he gets to restricted free agency in 2017.
