Enes Kanter's performance at the combine was huge for his draft stock. Teams know that he takes his conditioning seriously. He could easily have shown up out of shape, but his conditioning was better than any other big. Without a game played in about a year. That's extremely impressive.

It moved me into the pro Kanter camp. Kanter or Valanciunas. Either one, but I still prefer Valanciunas.
I would like Kanter as well however I'm going to hold to my mock draft and say he'll be gone with Utah at the #3. Seems after the combine it pushed him up which is too bad for us. This is great news for the Cavs though as Knight will fall to them at the 4 - plus I have them taking Williams 1 so this will be a good draft for them. Jonas will be great for the Raps, I've said that before, especially if the NBA is locked out for the year.
