NBA Draft 2011 Trade Rumors: Washington Wizards Looking To Move Up For Enes Kanter, According To Reports

The Washington Wizards currently hold the No. 6 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, but many NBA trade rumors have them exploring the possibility of moving up to select big man Enes Kanter, who most believe will be off the board at No. 6. The latest comes from Draft Express' Jonathan Givony, who suggests the Wizards are talking to the Utah Jazz, who currently own the No. 3 pick.

Being discussed for Utah: Trading #3 to Washington for #6+18. Then take whoever's left between Walker or Knight at 6. Kanter would go 3

Earlier in the day, there was a rumor, albeit not as credible, that the Wizards were discussing using the exact same package to trade up to the Cleveland Cavaliers' No. 4 pick. Clearly, there is a lot out there that indicates the Wizards are enamored with Kanter, the Kentucky basketball big man recruit who was deemed ineligible this season.
