Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter’s name has come up in trade rumors involving the Oklahoma City Thunder…
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been heavily involved in trade talks as the NBA trade deadline approaches, particularly with the Brooklyn Nets about center Brook Lopez.
Goran Dragic Heat – Miami Heat offer three players, two first-round picks for Phoenix Suns point guard
Kevin Garnett Timberwolves – Minnesota Timberwolves awaiting decision from Brooklyn Nets star
Arron Afflalo Blazers – Portland Trail Blazers acquire Denver Nuggets shooting guard in trade
However, they have not committed to anything, and they are also interested in possibly acquiring Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter.
The Thunder are in serious need of an upgrade at center since Kendrick Perkins has been underwhelming during most of his five-year tenure with the team.
Kanter has developed into a solid big man since being drafted third overall by the Jazz in 2011, as he averages 13.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.
Playing with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook is sure to boost his production if he goes to Oklahoma City.
Yahoo! Sports NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported on the latest Thunder trade rumor on Twitter.
Sources: OKC hasn’t committed to Lopez deal, and there’s still another center that they’ve had talks about acquiring: Utah’s Enes Kanter.
