NBA Draft Rumors: Enes Kanter Schedules Second Visit To Cavaliers, Possibly In Mix At No. 1

Turkish center Enes Kanter will have another NBA Draft workout with the Cleveland Cavaliers early next week, his agent told reporters at Kanter's workout with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday. But according to Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the workout isn't meant to inform Cleveland's No. 4 pick: it's to make the case for Kanter as No. 1 overall.

Kanter's camp might be blowing smoke as so many do this time of year, but the idea Duke point guard Kyrie Irving is a lock at No. 1 has crumbled a bit as the June 23 draft approaches. If Kanter were made the No. 1 pick, Irving would certainly be off of the board by No. 4; the Cavs would likely be looking at point guards Brandon Knight and Kemba Walker, or a wing like Jan Vesely.

Kanter could also go No. 2 to the Wolves and No. 3 to the Utah Jazz. He has no college or major international experience, making him one of the biggest question marks in the 2011 draft.
