NBA Role: inside-out, scoring power forward Star UnderDOG

Welcome to the Enes Kanter Experience; Enes Kanter is an enigma: he has more than a few flaws defensively but there’s no questioning how cold. he can be on offense; a walking double-double, Kanter is a proficient, inside-out scorer equipped with the size to bang in the middle and snag plenty of caroms; gets buckets – Kanter can hit shots from both elbows after a screen (86% of his field goals from 15-19 feet were assisted in ’15-’16), face up & drive hard to the cup, finish dump-off passes and score via hook shots and floaters – advanced offensive repertoire; delegated to a more suitable Sixth Man role due to his porous defense – plays small when protecting the paint; best role is as a ‘third’ big whose main focus is to finish off plays and crash the glass outta Billy Donovan’s second unit

Signature Move: spin, counter, hook
