At the 2014 World Cup and the 2015 EuroBasket, Gobert won bronze medals while competing for France internationally.
He also took home bronze and silver medals from the 2011 and 2012 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championships, respectively.
Gobert re-signed with the Jazz on October 31, 2016, for a four-year, $102 million deal, making him the best-paid French athlete in history in terms of salary per year.
For the 2019–20 NBA season and the 2020–21 NBA season, Rudy will make $24,258,427 and $25,775,281, respectively. He received the Utah Jazz's highest salary this season.
Gobert purchased the home in 2014 and now resides in Saint-Quentin. This opulent home is thought to be worth about $1 million.
It's interesting to note that he declined a chance to sign a "supermax" contract, which would have paid about $20 million more than the agreement he eventually did.
