Meet Aurelie — Girlfriend of French NBA Draft Prospect Mathias Lessort


Our NBA Draft prospect series continues today with French big man Mathias Lessort (Nanterre). Draft Express has him ranked as their 32nd best prospect, while the folks over at The Ringer have him 43rd. Obviously most Americans haven’t heard of Mathias, so expect the Spurs and Gregg Popovich to steal this guy at 29 or 59 — that’s just how it works.

A snippet of Mathias’ scouting report from Draft Express:

From a physical standpoint, there’s a lot to like about Lessort’s profile. He has decent size at around 6’9, boasts a NBA ready frame (listed at 246 pounds), and possesses a solid 7’1 wingspan that allows him to play slightly bigger than his height. He’s also a very good athlete, light on his feet, capable of sprinting the court with impressive speed, and being extremely nimble and agile with his movement, enabling him to cover ground on both ends of the floor exceptionally well. Lessort is also pretty explosive off two feet, being responsible for some highlight reel caliber finishes this season off pick and roll bounce passes or lobs, often through contact.

Where the latest mock drafts have Mathias:

Draft Express: #43 (Houston) #46 (Philly)
Chad Ford (In$$$ider): #35 (Orlando)

Off the court, it looks like Mathias is already taken and dating a model named Aurelie.
