Report: Jazz want young talent, first-rounder for Enes Kanter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) NBA executives believe Utah has a significant threshold for any deal involving their big man Enes Kanter, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports on Tuesday. The Jazz are seeking a packege that includes a young play and a first-round draft pick. However, with the trade deadline on Thursday, only several teams are pursuing Kanter at the moment.

Kanter will be a restricted free agent this summer and has expressed frustration with his inconsistent role with the Jazz. Kanter is averaging 7.2 points and 4.3 rebounds in only 15.4 minutes per game this season.


No 'investment in his development' is why Jazz C Kanter wants out


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) One of the primary reasons why Jazz center Enes Kanter wants to be dealt by the trade deadline is due to a "lack of investment in his development," Kanter's agent Max Ergul said on radio station 1280 The Zone.

Kanter told reporters following Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks that he wanted out of Utah.

Ergul also said on-air that playing time was a concern for Kanter, who is only getting 15.4 minutes per game for the Jazz. 

For the season, Kanter is averaging 7.2 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

"He became a little sensitive about minute distribution," Ergul said. "He just wants to play ... He feels he was robbed, in a sense."

Ergul also said he believes Kanter is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of player.

"He's one of the most dominant players of his generation. If he wasn't, [Jazz senior vice president of basketball operations] Kevin O'Connor wouldn't have selected him with number three pick," Ergul said.

"It was not my eye at all," Kanter said after the game. "I don't know what it was, but it was not my eye at all. So we'll see what's going to happen."

Kanter will be a restricted free agent this summer and has expressed frustration with his inconsistent role with the Jazz. Including Wednesday's loss, the center has seen less than 25 minutes of action in four of the team's last eight games.

Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey declined comment on the situation Wednesday night.
