Cavs host prospect Kanter for workout

Posted Jun 7 2011 5:49PM

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Turkish center Enes Kanter has worked out for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who own the Nos. 1 and 4 overall picks in this month's NBA draft.

Kanter, a 6-foot-11, 260-pounder, could be in the mix to be the second selection for the Cavs, who are expected to choose Duke point guard Kyrie Irving with the top pick. The Cavs confirmed Kanter's visit and said Irving would be in "sometime soon."

The team is not making players available for interviews.

Kanter enrolled at Kentucky last year but was ruled ineligible before the season began because he had been paid to play professionally in Turkey.

The Cavaliers have reportedly shopped the No. 4 pick, possibly to add players and perhaps another pick later in the first round.
