Kanter in wait-and-see mode

November 15, 2011 @ 1:27 pm by Jorge Sierra · Filed under Enes Kanter, Lockout, Utah Jazz

Jazz draftee Enes Kanter is working out in Los Angeles getting ready for an NBA season that might never happen. That would be the second year in a row in which Kanter is unable to play in the U.S. due to off-the-court issues after being declared permanently ineligible by the NCAA last season, when he would have played for John Calipari’s Kentucky.

The Turkish center is in no rush to take an offer abroad, though, and will probably wait and see what happens with the lockout before committing to any team, according to agent Max Ergul.

“It’s too early to jump on that ship,” Ergul said. “We’re looking at options, as always, but we just don’t know right now what’s going to happen. We’re looking at some stuff in Asia - China and Korea. And there’s Spain. But we just don’t want to go to a complicated situation.

Anyway, we’re not ready to commit. We might still have an NBA season and at this point every offer we get from Europe is from teams that want him for a full season. As of now, we can’t take a deal that doesn’t include an NBA out, but that may change if [the NBA] goes to court. That would change the whole thing.”

Kanter’s only competitive basketball action in the last two years took place at the Eurobasket last summer. The third overall pick in the 2011 draft averaged 9.6 ppg and 3.9 rpg with the Turkish National Team there.

Brian T. Smith: Kanter's definitely open to the move but everything about the situation has to be right. He needs the experience, though, and is being pushed to remain active. Saying the lockout hurts Kanter's development is an understatement. Twitter

Not sure he is a former Jazzman yet. But, the injuries continue with him.

Former Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko broke his nose and injured his left shoulder Saturday during a CSKA Moscow game.
CSKA's website said a postgame medical examination by doctors "did not reveal a concussion." However, Kirilenko will undergo additional tests during the next few days, with "special attention" paid to his shoulder.

Kirilenko has excelled while playing overseas during the NBA lockout and was recently named weekly MVP of the Euroleague.
The longtime Jazz player will be an unrestricted free agent when the NBA's work stoppage ends.

Agent Marc Fleisher speaks Monday about former Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko's recent injury.
Fleisher on what he knows about Kirilenko's injury and whether he received a concussion, which some media outlets reported: "I talked to him about 45 minutes after it happened. He told me he did not suffer a concussion. He said he broke his nose and had some bruises. … He said to me he was feeling fine the next day and they'd given him a nose job later that day. He said that hurt a little bit, but he expected that he probably would not miss any games. … I don't know how many days they'll tell him that he has to protect the nose. He's playing his butt off. He's really playing good."

Mark Fleisher, agent for Mehmet Okur: “I talked to him this morning and told him what was up. He sort of wants to [play in Turkey] as long as he can so he can stay in as good of shape as possible, rather than leave now and then have to go 14 or 15 days without playing. We’ll just have to wait and see. Presumably we’ll hear more in the next couple of days. … He was happy to hear it.” Fleisher added that Okur could return to Utah about Dec. 5 if training camp opens Dec. 9.

Assuming they don't use the amnesty clause, deal his expiring contract or buy him out so he can stay in Turkey. He and Jefferson need to go. Sounds like Favors is ready to step it up and with Millsap around they are expendable.

Andrei Kirilenko, now that a new CBA is reached in NBA and the lockout is over, will return to US, according to sources close to the situation. The Russian forward, who signed a multi-year deal with CSKA Moscow, wants to pen a multi-year deal in NBA where he has played for 10 years with Utah Jazz. Sportando

Wonder if that's the Lakers or Clipps. Could make sense for either of course as he could almost anywhere with his versatility.

Former Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko has not made a decision about returning to the NBA and is still a member of CSKA Moscow, agent Marc Fleisher told The Salt Lake Tribune on Monday.

Salt Lake Tribune

Kirilenko plans to remain with CSKA until the NBA's labor situation clears up and details about what is expected be a chaotic free agency period are made concrete. "He and I have decided to evaluate the NBA interest versus what he has over there and then a decision will be made," Fleisher said.

Salt Lake Tribune

Kirilenko will be an unrestricted free agent once the lockout ends. Recent media reports claimed that Kirilenko had already made up his mind about returning to the NBA and had even narrowed down his ideal choice of teams. "I asked Andrei where all that stuff comes from and he said, 'I have no idea,' " Fleisher said.

The Pacers talked to the Utah Jazz about forward Paul Milsap prior to the draft. Expect them to make a phone call to the Jazz again. The 26-year-old Milsap, a Pacer killer in the past, averaged a career-high 17 points last season. The Pacers can make this deal happen because they’ll have salary cap space and they won’t hesitate to give up a draft pick to get a player that will help solve their power forward problems.

Offer them Jefferson or Okur.

Matt Harpring: my top free agent that will be worth the money, marc gasol. The offer would be 4yrs, 42 mil. He can be a good player on a good team.

Our team’s forward Andrei Kirilenko took additional tests today and consulted with experts in sports traumatology. According to the verdict of doctors, contusion changes in the muscles and ligaments of the left shoulder will require long-term therapeutic measures. Taking into consideration the necessity of long-term rehabilitation process and the need to get back into shape through practices, Kirilenko will likely miss the remaining CSKA games in year 2011. cskabasket.com

Maybe they should stay away from him?
