Enes Kanter 'In Conversation' For Washington Wizards If They Win NBA Draft Lottery, According To Report

The Washington Wizards will be looking for their second straight NBA Draft Lottery win on Tuesday, and if they somehow manage to pull it off, most believe they will target Arizona's Derrick Williams. However, a source told ESPN's Chad Ford that the Wizards would seriously consider taking Enes Kanter over Williams if they won the lottery. 

He still might have a chance to go No. 1 overall if the Washington Wizards get the No. 1 pick. While we currently have them taking Derrick Williams No. 1 in our Mock Draft Lottery, a well-placed source said Kanter would be in the conversation.    

That would be one heck of a shock. The Wizards do need a player like Kanter that will score in the paint, grab rebounds and give them the kind of toughness JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche do not possess. However, it's a big risk to take a player who has not played for a full year.
