NBA Draft 2011: How the Wizards Can End Up with Enes Kanter at No. 6

Many people seem to think that the Wizards have no chance at the Turkish prospect Enes Kanter if they do not trade up from the sixth spot in the draft.  If you look at the teams ahead of the Wizards you will see that many are starting to show more interest in prospects other than Kanter knowing that his ultimate desire is to play with the Washington Wizards.

Recently, the Wizards released their NBA pre-draft workout schedules for the remainder of the week, and Enes Kanter was not among the lists of names.  Now does this mean that they have no interest in Kanter?

No.

Who knows, maybe something is being held in store for a major draft day deal.  Here is a very interesting quote from Kanter's agent via Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

"Listen, we like Washington. I haven't heard anything from them," said Kanter's agent, Max Ergul. "I guess they know he's not going to be there at six. So, until they do something about it, it seems like they are not going to give me a call for workout."    

This news isn't a big deal, mainly because the Wizards didn't work out last year's No. 17 pick Kevin Seraphin or JaVale McGee back in 2008 when he was selected No. 18.

Here is how the draft may pan out in a scenario where Washington gets Kanter at No. 6.
