SALT LAKE CITY – Rudy Gobert is planning to celebrate his birthday by playing one-on-one basketball with one lucky Utah Jazz fan and a guest at his Salt Lake City home.

The three-time Defensive Player of the Year announced that fans can compete for the opportunity to play against him by donating $10 or more to his “Rudy’s Kids” foundation.

“The organization has teamed up with charitable platform, CAUZEO, to host an online fundraiser that will award one Gobert fan,” the release for the event read.

The three-time All-Star averaged 15.6 points for the Jazz this season while adding a league-best 14.7 rebounds per game.

Gobert has a private gym at his home that he shows off regularly on his social media pages.

Rudy’s Kids Foundation

Gobert’s “Rudy’s Kids Foundation” raises money to help charities that support children across the world, including both the United States and the All-Star’s native France.

“It is the Foundation’s mission to ensure that those with fewer means are granted access to opportunities and resources in health, education, and recreation. Thereby helping our youth transform themselves, influence their families and their communities,” the foundation’s mission statement reads.

The Jazz originally drafted Gobert with the 27th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft. The center has been named to four All-NBA teams and six All-Defensive teams during his time with the Jazz.
