MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Enes Kanter worked out for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday and said he’d love for them to take him No. 2 overall in next week’s draft.
Kanter was originally scheduled to workout by himself, but instead went against Oakland center Keith Benson. The Timberwolves were impressed by his willingness to work out with other players, something that doesn’t always happen with some of the draft’s top prospects.
The Wolves also worked out Colorado shooting guard Alec Burks and Providence guard Marshon Brooks.
The Timberwolves also have Arizona forward Derrick Williams in town. Williams was scheduled to work out on Thursday afternoon with several other lower tier prospects.
