Enes Kanter 2018-2019 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Is it a points league?  Otherwise we have no idea.  For all we know you just tanked your FT% for rebounds and blocks you didn't need, while losing points that you did.  We have no idea if you won or lost in a categories league and we don't care, either.

Does no one else feel sorry for the guy?   He seems so supportive off the bench (he's been cheering for his teammates every time they score), and he's a gifted scorer and rebounder, even in

lol Fizdale ejected that ref must be a Kanter owner too. Bless her

If y'all are selling then I'm buying.

Yet you take the time out of your day to write that up... go back to Reddit with that negative sh*t.

Positive, negative or neutral you're clogging up this thread with your personal trade. Take it to the assistant coach forum man.

you guys think we should sell high after these last 2 games? I can't tell if NY is going to go full on with the youth movement and Kanter sees less minutes or if they keep starting the rookie but Kanter sees more minutes

who would be your target? i think everyone in the competitive league knows that his role will keep fading away

I guess I'm questioning how much his role will actually fade down the stretch. They seem to really need his offense. Even if he can consistently get 25 minutes off the bench looks like he'll be productive.

 

To answer your question I was thinking of buying low on Otto Porter with him.

Do you guys think Kanter may be traded later in the season? Would his value be better if it did?

theres a really good chance he gets traded imo. tough to say wether his value goes up though. if he gets 25+ minutes on the Knicks I can't see his value getting better. hes a scoring and rebounding machine when hes on the court. if he goes to a contender the minutes and rebounds may be there but no way his putting up points like he does when he plays with the Knicks.

I tried to sell him high even before the demotion to the bench, here are the offers I made that my trade partners accepted.

Kanter + Matthews = Klay (before his record setting 3's)

Kanter + Matthews = Ibaka (before ibaka going nuts)

 

but it got vetoed in the end. I can say my league sucks.

no way the ibaka one was vetoable 

 

klay trade maybe, but i would let that slide as commish

Yeah, no way the Ibaka one should have been vetoed.  Honestly, at the time, I would have said you lost in that trade.  Oh well I guess.

 

As for Kanter, I'm going to just sit back and enjoy his line.  Then maybe I'll worry about considering selling high tomorrow.

Kanter's problem is he doesn't play defense or spread the floor.  Gives great rebounds and points per minute, so in real life basketball no team is going to give him that outside of a Knicks team with an injured Tim Hardaway and Porzingis.  Their best scorers right now besides Kanter are an undrafted rookie and a second rounder from 2017.  He's definitely a sell high if you can swing it.

Kanter owners shouldn’t panic. While his upside isn’t as great as it was starting and getting 32-34mpg, he is still very valuable getting 25-28 off the bench against backups. He dominates coming off the bench. And there’s still a chance Fizdale brings him back to the starting lineup. Plus Fizdale saying he wants Kanter go for 6th man of the year means he’ll still be getting heavy usage off the bench. 

 

If you can move him for a starter with more upside, that’s a solid move too. But holding him will still help your team.

He went off... I still believe his long term upside is capped by the Knicks tank

 

Again though, if they're tanking shouldn't Kanter get like 36 minutes a night?

 

Seems to me they're trying to put a decent product on the floor--offensively and defensively.

 "I think in his heart of hearts, he probably had his heart set on starting," Fizdale said. "That’s a good thing to know that he wanted that.

 

Such a patronizing comment. Pretty much 99.9% of players want to start. That is not a complement. BS lip service to try and make him feel better. He said this is the right way to go and I do agree. Mitchell is in their the future plans and Kanter is not so it makes sense, but honestly Mr. Data is brain dead if he thinks that would soften the blow for Kanter

 

I don’t have Kanter or Mitchell, but just wanted to point out how stupid the comment was.
