After having moved to the United States and played a short freshman season with Maryland, it is about time to make an update on his situation as he is currently being considered as a NBA Draft 2013 lottery pick.

Rudy Gobert is currently the hottest name in terms of European chances to get selected in the NBA Draft 2013 among the lottery picks. As his game is already pretty much known and as we reported already several times about him, I wanted to go for a little more background information on the French inside player that is currently scouted by dozens of NBA executives that are touring through the European winter.

After being on the radar in Germany for the last four years, Philipp Neumann is currently playing his break-out season for the German champions Brose Baskets. The German big guy is seeing regular and quality minutes in the Euroleague and the Bundesliga and is showing nice progress over the last months. Not very well known as an NBA prospect because he never participated to the Adidas Eurocamp, Neumann is developing into one of the most promising undrafted European big men.

(Luís Cristóvão) When you talk about Basketball, Portugal isn’t the place you go looking for young talent. Mostly, because the Portuguese don’t usually are in the big competitions. With almost no teams playing in European Cups (Benfica was the exception in the 2010/11 Eurochallenge) and a weak National Team (after making it to Eurobasket 2011, losing all the five matches, Portugal lost their eight games in the Eurobasket 2013 Qualifications). But, still, talent watchers should follow what’s going on the Portuguese League.

This week, the Euroleague season 2012/13 will start but the excitement for talent scouts remains a bit limited as the number of interesting prospects has gone down. The most talented players are not yet ready for being a major factor in the Euroleague so that the number of NBA Draft picks coming from the Euroleague this season might remain small. We have chosen nevertheless five players that are worth to follow, hence not really for NBA Draft aficionados. However, our wildcard does not go to a specific player this time, so enjoy.

In our second part of the U18 European Championship reporting, we take a look at the major wing prospects of the event. Of course, Dario Saric will not be discussed in this article as he was featured already in a separate post. Once again, the players from the team ranked 9 to 12 are not in this article as I was unable to follow a game of these teams.

In our first part of scouting reports about the U18 European Championship, I will talk about the main guard prospects. Please not that I could not scout the teams of Turkey, Slovenia, Greece and Ukraine which explains why no players from these nations will be in the reports. Some of the players I saw already during the Albert-Schweitzer Tournament are not featured either, mainly because they showed no particular progress since the Mannheim event that was scheduled a few months ago.
