NBA Draft 2011: Enes Kanter Has A Very Good Workout With Wizards

Enes Kanter probably won't be on the board when the Wizards make the sixth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, but he is something of the dream prospect for the organization. He was in Washington last week for a workout with the organization, just in case an unlikely situation plays out and the Wizards have the chance to draft him. According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, that workout went "very, very well."

Enes Kanter ran through a series of drills on Friday with Wizards Coach Flip Saunders for more than an hour at Tim Grover’s Attack Athletics gym in Chicago. Afterward, Kanter met with Saunders, Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld and other members of the basketball operations staff. Kanter’s agent, Max Ergul, said that the Wizards spent a lot of time getting to know his client and asked questions about his family and personal interests.

Kanter has expressed his intertest in playing for the Wizards because of a friendship he has developed with point guard John Wall because of their relationship to the University of Kentucky. Kanter would give the Wizards a rebounding presence, and an inside offensive force (no, Andray Blatche isn't one) that they are lacking. But again, the chances of him lasting all the way to their pick is unlikely.
