2011 NBA Mock Draft: Enes Kanter To Washington Wizards In Draft Express Mock

Draft Express has been the only outlet to have Kentucky recruit Enes Kanter falling to the Washington Wizards in its mock drafts, and that trend has continued. In his latest 2011 NBA Mock Draft for Yahoo! Sports, Jonathan Givony has the Wizards selecting Kanter with the No. 6 overall pick.

If Kanter isn't drafted second or third, his next most likely destination is in here. All indications are that the Wizards would love to add him to their frontcourt rotation. He would give them a big boost on the glass in particular, an area where they ranked among the NBA's worst last season. Washington is also exploring opportunities to move up, ideally to No. 2, where they'd be able to select Derrick Williams, who would be an ideal teammate for John Wall.    

Most other sites have Kanter going much higher, so why is he slipping here? Givony has the Minnesota Timberwolves ultimately taking Derrick Williams at No. 2, which begins Kanter's slide. He has the Utah Jazz picking Kentucky point guard Brandon Knight at No. 3 and the Cleveland Cavaliers choosing Jonas Valanciunas over Kanter at No. 4. He also has the Toronto Raptors picking Kemba Walker at No. 5.

Givony also has the Wizards selecting Tennessee small forward Tobias Harris at No. 18.
