Standing at about 6-11 and weighing 260, Kanter is a force around the rim. The combination of his superb strength, soft touch, and 7-1 wingspan is what makes him such a handful in the paint.
He owns a variety of scoring options from post moves and finishing at the basket, to knocking down mid-range shots. His aforementioned strength provides his ability to absorb and muscle through contact on finishes.
On top of all of his skills and high basketball IQ, he brings great energy and works hard.
His play during his lone season at Stoneridge Preparatory School in Simi Valley, California and in the 2010 Nike Hoops Summit is where his game has been based on for the most part. Despite his lack of playing time in the Euroleague and Turkish Basketball League in his native country of Turkey, and his ineligibility at Kentucky, his gained experience from practice with his scattered team mates and coaches is valuable for a prospect moving forward.
