SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah center Rudy Gobert flew a cancer-surviving fan of his all the way from France to the United States to watch a couple of Jazz games in person.

Enzo Danieau is a cancer survivor from France and a huge fan of Jazzman Rudy Gobert. After a five-year battle with leukemia, Danieau’s cancer is in remission.

Gobert connected with his fellow Frenchman and brought him to the USA to celebrate his recovery by watching the Jazz play.

Gobert first sent Danieau an autograph along with a special video inviting him and his mother to visit the States and see the Jazz play.

Danieau arrived in Utah and watched Gobert post 13 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks in a 110-96 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on October 30.

According to KSLSports.com’s Ben Anderson, Danieau will join Gobert for Utah’s game in Sacramento on Friday, November 1.

The Jazz (4-1) and Kings (0-5) are scheduled to tip-off at 8 p.m. (MDT). The game will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet and 97.5 FM.
