In an interview with FIBA, Rudy Gobert talked about playing for the national team in the 2019 Basketball World Cup.

Here is what the center of the Utah Jazz said:

On the upcoming Basketball World Cup: “We want to have a great run, and try to fight for the top spots.

Nothing is impossible, we want to fight for the best and we would like to write another great page in France’s basketball history. The level of the competition is going to be very high, so a lot of teams can reach the top three spots.

Yes, I will play, absolutely. It’s one of my goals for this year and I’m looking forward to competing in China this summer.

There are still plenty of months before the beginning of the tournament, but I want to wear the “bleu” jersey this summer and represent my country.”
