Gobert set NBA Draft Combine records for wingspan (7 feet 8 1/2 inches) and standing reach (9 feet 7 inches) in the 2013 combine. The record for wingspan has since been broken by Walter Tavares a year later.
On June 27, 2013, Gobert was selected as the 27th pick by the Denver Nuggets. He was shortly traded to the Utah Jazz for the 46th pick, Erick Green, and cash. On July 6, 2013, he was signed by the Jazz for the 2013–14 season. On December 14, 2013, he was assigned to the Bakersfield Jam. On December 21, he was recalled by the Jazz. On January 4, 2014, he was reassigned to the Jam. On January 13, he was recalled.
Most recently Gobert as enjoyed a stellar showing in his 2nd season playing in the Las Vegas Summer League. Many fans in an informal Twitter poll voted him as the player that fans were most impressed by due to his play. As a result, Gobert was named onto the 2014 All-NBA Summer League first team.
