Will Enes Kanter Be On The Cavaliers' Radar? A Tuesday Workout Might Answer That Question

According to this report from Mary Schmitt Boyer, Enes Kanter, the 6' 11" center from Turkey, will work out for the Cavaliers on Tuesday in Independence, although no details have been released and no interviews have been scheduled.

Kanter, 19, was originally going to be a Kentucky Wildcat but was ruled ineligible for having received money to play in Turkey

Kanter might be in the running to be the fourth pick in the first round by the Cavs in the June 23 NBA Draft, and of course, if he does work out, and impresses, that would be more than an academic "might"..

But the talk is that he may not last until the fourth pick, although Cleveland will probably go with Kyle Irving at number one, and the Minnesota Timberwolves are likely to take Derrick Williams with the second pick. That would leave the Utah Jazz having to also pass on Kanter for Kanter to be available with the four.
