Default Re: Do not sleep on Enes Kanter

I will have to see the dude's measurables... be better have like a 9"2+ reach with a fat wingspan cus he just looks too slow to be a great player. He could be a solid player I mean he looks to be able to step out and hit a 15-199 foot jumper and he obviously has skills, seems like a Kevin Love type... range, crafty under the rim despite a lack of athleticism... I don't know I could see 18/10 at his peak for him.

Bingo - he's NBA ready, very skilled and an NBA body. It would be a huge mistake if Utah don't get him at 3 or Cleveland at 4.


Watch him close, he has very soft touch for a big guy.

Default Re: Do not sleep on Enes Kanter

f*** jazz. i hope they dont get him because they will waste him just like they did on Okur.

Irving and Kanter to Cavs seem like a good deal for both Cavs and the players.

However he has muscle and bulk , and he doesn't appear to be a player that would squirm when the tough gets going.
I think he is a mid 1st rounder and I'd be surprised if he goes above the 5th pick.
Players like this in the right coaching staff circles can make this a concrete player for 12 years , because there is no flash , but could develop into a great fundamental type player.


You seem to be completely disregarding his very polished back to the basket game. And by above the 5th pick, do you mean in the top five or not top five? If you mean you''ll be surprised if he's a top five pick then go ahead and prepare yourself to be surprised, because almost everything I'm reading, every mock etc. has him as a top 5 pick.
