12 NBA Young Guns To Watch (If There’s A Season)

By: 11.10.11

Player: Enes Kanter
Team: Utah Jazz
Year: Rookie

Enes Kanter’s a bit of a mystery. He was ruled ineligible by the NCAA last year – preventing him from joining Brandon Knight at Kentucky – so he hasn’t played organized ball in almost two years. He’s big though – 6’11,” 259, with 5.9 percent body fat according to DraftExpress. He’s got some post moves too, and has a soft touch from outside. Plus, he won’t have to do it all right away. Instead, he can spend the year learning from Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap on the Jazz. — Ben Lampin
