NBA Mock Draft Update: Draft Express Has Wizards Taking Enes Kanter (!) (UPDATED)

New, comments

Here's your semi-regular 2011 NBA Mock Draft update:

  • Draft Express, which for my money is the most reliable of any service, has the Washington Wizards taking Enes Kanter with the No. 6 overall pick. Draft Express has Cleveland going with Jonas Valanciunas at No. 4 over Kanter, and then has Toronto taking Kemba Walker at No. 5. Draft Express then has the Wizards grabbing Tobias Harris, a 6'8'' combo forward from Tennessee, at No. 18 and JaJuan Johnson, a big man from Purdue, at No. 34.
  • Tom Ziller of SBNation.com has the Wizards taking Jan Vesely at No. 6 and Chris Singleton at No. 18. He has Kanter going No. 3 to Utah and Valanciunas going No. 4 to Cleveland.
  • Frank Hanrahan also has the Wizards taking Vesely and says the Wizards are high on him, according to his sources. This isn't exactly new news, but there you go.
  • UPDATE: Chad Ford's latest mock is out, and he has the Wizards taking Kawhi Leonard at 6 and Klay Thompson at 18. He has Cleveland taking Kanter and Toronto taking Vesely. On Leonard, he writes: " With GM Ernie Grunfeld's job hanging in the balance, he doesn't have a lot of room to take risks -- especially on international players who might not come to Washington for years. Leonard's ability to come in and provide energy, defense and length right away makes him an attractive option and a potential impact player in Year 1."
So there you have it.
