Enes Kanter scored 16 points with five rebounds and five turnovers in 23 minutes against the Wizards on Friday. He makes a lot of sense as a bench center and he did get plenty of opportunity to score tonight, making 6-of-11 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line -- Kristaps Porzingis didn't play in this one. We all know the drill with Kanter as a guy who will produce points, boards and little else, but he's still worth a look in most leagues.

Enes Kanter scored 17 points in his Knicks debut on Tuesday vs. the Nets with three rebounds and one assist. He did all of his damage in just 17 minutes and could've had an even bigger night if he didn't miss a few easy layups. Kanter took a couple of really hard falls tonight, but he escaped without an injury. He finished 4-of-8 from the field and 9-of-10 from the field and was the first big off the bench. The Knicks will experiment with different lineups in the preseason, but a sixth man role may suit Kanter the best.

Enes Kanter will compete with Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez at training camp for the starting center slot in New York. "We’re looking at all our centers,’’ Jeff Hornacek said. "You’ve got Enes. You’ve got KO [Kyle O’Quinn]. You have Willy. All those guys do great things for us. We’re trying to find the best way to use them, and they all kind of lend different things, but they’re all well-rounded players." It's possible that the center position in New York could devolve into a timeshare situation primary between Kanter and Hernangomez, which is far from an ideal situation in fantasy hoops. Both guys remain worth a late-round flier, but a timeshare could ruin their standard league appeal.

Enes Kanter lost 33 pounds (273 to 240) this offseason to improve his mobility on defense. Kanter rarely left the OKC bench during the playoffs because he was a liability on defense, so it's a good sign that he's committed to improve. The Knicks like Kanter's "toughness, physicality and ability to get to the free-throw line and score inside," and he should have a larger role in New York than the one he had in OKC. It's not clear if Kanter will start over Willy Hernangomez, but he's on the radar in the later rounds for owners targeting points, rebounds and shooting percentages.
