2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

After spending his first three and a half seasons with the Jazz, Kanter was traded to the Thunder at the trade deadline last February. With incumbent starting center Steven Adams out with a broken hand at the time of the trade, Kanter was thrust into the starting lineup in his first game with the Thunder and never relinquished it, posting career-high averages of 18.7 points, 11.0 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.5 blocks, and 0.5 steals in 31 minutes per game through 26 contests. Kanter excelled with the Thunder, shooting 57 percent from the field and 78 percent from the line, turning around what was looking like another disappointing season. At 6-foot-11 and 247 pounds, Kanter is nimble enough to play power forward, but his only real position in the NBA today is center. Oklahoma City already has two scoring phenoms in Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, so with both players healthy this season, there probably won't be another 18.7 points available every night for Kanter. Despite the fact that the Thunder matched the offer sheet Kanter signed witht the Trail Blazers, there's legitmiate concern that Kanter's defensive deficiencies could have him sitting on the bench more than he did last season on an injury-depleted Thunder squad. Kanter also underwent a minor arthroscopic knee procedure in April that was supposed to sideline him for four-to-six weeks, but considering that the team matched his offer sheet of four-years and $70 million, there's little reason to be concerned with the knee. He's had a whale's age to recover at this point. Kanter's scoring may not be there this season, but if he gets enough minutes, he should rebound well and be a great boon in the percentages categories for rotisserie leagues. Expect Kanter to have greater value in rotisserie leagues than he does in head-to-head leagues this season.

2014-15

Enes Kanter is entering his fourth season in the NBA after a disappointing 2013-14 season. By all statistical measures, it was the best season of Kanter's career (12.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.5 blocks in 27 minutes per game), but he was demoted to the bench midway through the season after beginning the year as a starter. However, new head coach Quin Snyder plans to move him back into the starting power forward slot this upcoming season. Kanter will play alongside Derrick Favors in the frontcourt. When given enough time on the court, the 22-year-old has proven to be a double-double threat, which was exemplified by the fact that he reached that benchmark 24 times last season. Despite remaining relatively healthy throughout his third year in the league, Kanter has been dealing with a knee injury in the offseason that caused him to pull out of the FIBA World Cup for Team Turkey. He's had the entire summer to rest and seems poised for a redemptive 2014-15 season.

2013-14

Through his first two seasons at the NBA level, Kanter has had to bide his time while backing up veteran big men Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap in Utah. Both Jefferson and Millsap left the Jazz via free agency this summer, opening the door for Kanter to live up to the potential he has flashed during his brief stints of extended run. The 21-year-old center averaged 7.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 0.5 blocks last season, but he did that damage in just 15 minutes per game. At 6-11, 260, Kanter is a mountain in the middle. His athleticism is somewhat average for a center, but he's physically imposing with solid post moves and a nice touch around the rim. He also has the ability to hit face-up jumpers and shot well from the free-throw line (79.5 percent) in his sophomore campaign. The minutes will be there for Kanter this season, so if his averages in his two starts last season (20 points, 15 rebounds) or his career per-36 minute averages (14.9 points, 10.7 rebounds) are any indication, we could be looking at one of the bigger breakout stories of the year. The only hurdle for Kanter is his recovery from shoulder surgery, but early indication is he'll be ready to take the court when training camp opens.

2012-13

Kanter is the only player on the Jazz roster that is close to seven feet tall. He played in all 66 regular season games last year and showed some promise of being a good inside player in his rookie season. He averaged 4.6 points and 4.2 rebounds in 13.2 minutes, and also shoot 49.6 percent from the field. 2012-13 should be another year of learning and adapting for Kanter, but we could see some decent numbers from him at times.

2011-12

The Utah Jazz selected the Turkish basketball player with third pick in the 2011 draft. He has a lot of potential he reminds most NBA analysts of another foreign center, Marc Gasol.
