2011 NBA Draft: Will the Jazz Draft Brandon Knight or Enes Kanter?
The Utah Jazz will have to weather the storm that surrounds the No.2 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. But it seems fairly certain that the Timberwolves won't be selecting either of the Jazz's two targets at the No.3 overall selection.
Ken Berger of CBSSports.com has reported that the pick will come down to two players.
The Jazz and Kentucky point guard Brandon Knight are a sensible match with the third pick, as Utah looks to replace the gaping hole left by the trade of Deron Williams to the Nets. Some execs have gotten indications that Utah also is considering Enes Kanter.
So which Kentucky player will the Jazz take at this coveted draft slot? Clearly, Brandon Knight is the safer pick. He's got a great NBA body, high basketball IQ, and the athleticism needed for both guard positions.
On the other hand, Enes Kanter is the wild card of the entire draft class. If he's as good as advertised, Utah could be passing up on a dominant NBA center that every team lusts for.
Utah has some tough decisions to make in this draft as the team holds the No.12 pick later in the first round. I still think drafting Kanter over Knight would be a major shocker, but with a draft this uncertain you never know what could happen.
