Rudy Gobert To Play For France At 2022 EuroBasket

May 31, 2022 8:44 AM

Rudy Gobert has committed to playing for France at 2022 EuroBasket. Gobert recently declared himself ready to help France try to win gold at EuroBasket.

Gobert was unsure if he would play after a long season with the Utah Jazz. He said he had to have his knee checked first and to make sure he was mentally ready to play for France this summer.

"It's been a few days that it's been clear in my head," Gobert said. "The process took some time. If I listened to myself, I would still be 200 percent to go, but in recent years I've had a few breaks because of knee pain.

"Once I had an MRI to ensure there was no problem, I was able to organize my summer. It was important that everything was clear in my head before I committed. The fact that Evan (Fournier) is there is a factor, I love going to war with him."
