    Default Kanter going all in

    Even Enes Kanter, who previously wasn't going to work out against anyone, is now reportedly working out against Tristan Thompson and Marcus Morris in Cleveland today. This may be an attempt for Kanter to prove he is worthy of consideration for the No. 1 pick and to lock up a spot in the top four.

    Kanter also met and worked out with the Toronto Raptors in Chicago on Monday.

    He would not face off against anybody for Toronto. So here you have a guy playing it smart. He wants to insure that he doesn't fall by showing the back end teams only his skills while on the flip side he's going all in with Cleveland, and I guess hoping to dominate Thompson and Morris at a level where he jumps to #1. If he makes it to #1 that would rock the whole top ten.

    He is much larger than both those players - a couple of inches and anywhere from 30-40 pounds. He should dominate and if he doesn't, bring out the ? marks.

    If he can manage to guard both of those players, that will show some defensive athleticism that Kanter has been questioned to have. So it could bode well for him in that regard. But I do agree with you, I think that what teams are really wanting to see is how Kanter can defensively work against a big center.

    Offensively there does not seem to be much of a question about Kanter and what he can do, at least less of a question then his defensive abilities.

    Good point on the defending of more athletic players.
