SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Rudy Gobert was announced to the 2018-19 All NBA Third Team. It is the second time in his career that he has been awarded All NBA honors after the 7-1 Frenchman was selected to the All NBA Second Team following the 2016-17 season.

Gobert ended his 2018-19 season averaging career highs in points per game (15.9), rebounds (12.9) and assists (2.0). He also averaged 2.3 blocks per game which ranked third best in the NBA as well as leading the NBA with a .669 field goal percentage.

Gobert is alongside some of the NBA’s best as Russel Westbrook, Blake Griffin, Lebron James and Kemba Walker accompanied the big Frenchman.

This accolade comes a day after Gobert was named to the All NBA Defensive First Team.
