2011 NBA Mock Draft, No. 3 Pick, Enes Kanter, Kentucky, Toronto Raptors
A 6-10 forward/center, Kanter never got to play a game at Kentucky after being ruled ineligible by the NCAA prior to his freshman year for the Wildcats because of money he received for playing professionally overseas.
A native of Turkey, Kanter mixes a powerful inside game with soft hands and a deft array of moves to score. The top foreign-born player entered in the draft, Kanter also possesses the ability to step out near the three-point line and knock down the jumper.
The dilemma facing the Toronto Raptors, currently sitting in the No. 3 slot, is that they’ve been down this road before with a foreign-born big man, tabbing Andrea Bargnani No. 1 overall in the 2006 draft. While Bargnani scored 21 ppg. this season, he’s never developed into the superstar the team expected and rumblings are that the Raptors may be willing to deal him.
Dealing Bargnani for a top flight guard and slotting Kanter down low could be the exact formula for success for the Raptors.
