Enes Kanter's odd decisions on when and where to work out for teams ahead of the 2011 NBA Draft could hurt his standing, reports Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress. In a comprehensive report on Kanter's prep school performance that includes rare video of the Turkish center in action, Givony reveals that teams have bristled at Kanter's workout schedule.
According to NBA teams in his draft range, Kanter hasn't helped himself with the way he's choosing to educate them about his abilities. His preference appears to be to leave teams in the dark and force them to make a decision based on limited information, which has frustrated them quite a bit from what they're saying in private conversations.
Kanter has not been consistent in the way he's approached the draft process, sending mixed messages and changing strategies seemingly on a daily basis.
It appears Kanter will work out for the Utah Jazz, who pick No. 3. Givony pegs his range as No. 2-6; how involved the Minnesota Timberwolves, who pick No. 2 but are rumored to be interested in trading down or out of the lottery, get in Kanter's courtship could be a tell on their own plans.
In the video breakdown, Givony points to Kanter's advanced offensive repertoire but notes that his defense leaves a ton to be desired.
