Jefferson gets competition in Kanter

Posted in Fantasy Basketball by DoubleDribble 183 days ago (http://feeds.cbssports.com)
The Jazz likened Enes Kanter to a "bull in a china shop," one they felt fortunate to grab with the No. 3 overall pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft. In Kanter, the Jazz get their coveted big man, especially considering the injury issues that have plagued Mehmet Okur. Kanter's raw skills and NBA size made him the top-rated center in the draft, though he also can play power forward. He is a bit of a mystery as he hasn't played basketball in nearly a year after being ruled ineligible at Kentucky. "It was so difficult because I couldn't play," said Kanter, who is from Turkey. "I still didn't give up. I knew in the end I would be fine." Kanter showed flashes at the 2010 Nike Hoops Summit, scoring 34 points for the World Team to break Dirk Nowitzki's record (33). He also was Most Valuable Player for the 2009 Turkish under 18 national team. "I will bring the team toughness and post moves, rebounding, everything," Kanter said. "I will try to do everything to make the playoffs." He will also have to compete with Al Jefferson for playing time.
