Player Outlook

How do we value Enes Kanter? If you just go by what he did after his trade to the Thunder, he is an elite, high-volume scorer and rebounder who can absolutely be the No. 1 center for your Fantasy team. He averaged 18.7 points and 11.0 rebounds per game in 26 games with the Thunder, including 10 with 20-plus points and 10-plus rebounds in the final two months of the season alone. Of course, Kanter landed in Oklahoma City in strange circumstances that aren't likely to be repeated; Kevin Durant was hurt the entire time, and both Steven Adams and Serge Ibaka missed significant time as well. At full strength, it is hard to see the Thunder giving Kanter quite so many minutes or shots as he was getting before, which means you have to recalibrate your expectations. He was a useful option in Utah, but more of a No. 2, which is what you should expect coming into this season. Target him in the middle rounds on Draft Day.

  • Thunder center Enes Kanter suffered what he is calling a mild ankle sprain Tuesday, The Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.He had a bit of a limp after Tuesday's game, in which he posted 17 points and 11 rebounds before exiting.

  • Thunder center Enes Kanter scored 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds off the bench in a 111-81 win over Turkish side Fenerbahce on Friday.Kanter coming off the bench may prove to hurt his fantasy value quite a bit. There's simply too much depth in the Thunders frontcourt for him to match his numbers last year with OKC and the only way he can become a fantasy stud again would be an injury. Without that, Kanter would be better passing on in drafts, as he will likely see no more than 25 minutes a game in this deep rotation. Not to mention, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook being completely healthy dominating the ballhandling and taking away shots from the rest of the offense.

  • The Thunder matched the Blazers' offer sheet for Enes Kanter on Sunday, the team announced. "We are excited that he will continue with us," general manager Sam Presti said. The Blazers had offered Kanter $70 million over four years. Kanter averaged 15.5 points and 8.9 rebounds last season.

  • Thunder center Enes Kanter, a restricted free agent, will sign an offer sheet with the Trail Blazers according to a report from Yahoo Sports. The Thunder will have an opportunity to match any contract Kanter receives, but the reported four-year, $70 million would put the Thunder in serious salary cap trouble. Despite the salary cap ramifications, general manager Sam Presti said the team plans to match the offer, reports The Oklahoman. Kanter, who came to the Thunder in a midseason deal with the Jazz, played well in Oklahoma City, averaging 18.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game in 26 games after the trade.
