MINNEAPOLIS: Turkish center Enes Kanter will return to Cleveland on Monday for a second visit with the draft approaching.
The 6-foot-11 Kanter worked out for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday. The Wolves own the second pick in the June 23 draft, while the Cavaliers have the first and fourth picks.
Kanter's agent says his client will return to Cleveland on Monday and meet with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert. The Cavs are widely expected to take Duke point guard Kyrie Irving with the first pick, but Max Ergul says he thinks his client is still in the mix for that spot.
The 19-year-old Kanter did not play basketball last season after being ruled ineligible to play at Kentucky because he had been paid to play professionally in Turkey.
