Blazers Get Enes Kanter Back in Threeway Trade

The Portland Trail Blazers are acquiring Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter in a three-way deal that also includes the Memphis Grizzlies, sources tell ESPN. The Blazers are listed with 40-1 odds of winning the 2021 NBA Championship.

From Rotoworld:

“Portland will send Mario Hezonja to Memphis, and the Celtics will get a future first-round pick from the Grizzlies in exchange for Desmond Bane. Kanter will help backup Jusuf Nurkic in Portland, but while Nurk is healthy, Kanter won’t get the playing time he needs to make an impact in fantasy hoops. This trade also essentially guarantees that Hassan Whiteside will not be on the Trail Blazers roster this upcoming season.”

Further from ESPN:

“Kanter’s $5 million salary slides into Portland’s $7 million trade exception and allows the Blazers again pair Jusuf Nurkic with Kanter, a model that helped lead Portland to the Western Conference finals.”
