Circulating reports from draft experts have the Washington Wizards selecting Enes Kanter, a 6’11” Power Forward, out of The University of Kentucky. Kanter, who has a knack for dominating the boards, coupled with an extremely high basketball IQ, was permanently ineligible this season for receiving more than $33,000 in benefits, while playing for his Turkish club team, Fenerbahce.
