Many of you will be quite surprised not to see Derrick Williams here, but I would argue that Enes Kanter, though he is not as talented as Williams, is nonetheless the better fit for Minnesota.
That being said, Minnesota could also take Derrick Williams second overall regardless and then trade him to the team that drafts Kanter. This would allow them to get not only Kanter but also someone else as well.
Strengths: Despite his excellent mid-range jump shot, Enes Kanter should in no way be described as a “soft European player.” Rather, Kanter is a tough and physical center/power forward who loves to bang down low with his great post game and his plethora of post moves to beat his defender. He is also an excellent rebounder along with his good ball handling and passing skills.
Weaknesses: The biggest knock on Kanter would have to be his lack of athleticism and leaping ability; however, he is able to make up for this in part with his high basketball IQ. Aside from that, health could be an issue with Kanter, but we will find out more on that come the draft combine.
How Enes Kanter helps Minnesota:
Minnesota already has Michael Beasley at the three, and although I would argue that Derrick Williams would be an upgrade over Beasley, I see Minnesota instead going with Enes Kanter at center in order to play alongside Kevin Love and take a bit of the burden off of him.
If all goes well and Minnesota signs finally Ricky Rubio (they are reportedly as close as ever and it could be official within the next few weeks), they will enter next season with a starting rotation that has the potential to become something very special in a couple years.
