Celtics reportedly trading Enes Kanter to Blazers in three-team deal

Celtics reportedly trading Enes Kanter to Blazers in three-team deal”

The 28-year-old center has been traded from the Boston Celtics as part of a three-team deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Now Kanter will backup Jusuf Nurkic on the Trail Blazers.

The Grizzlies will acquire Mario Hezonjia and the 30th overall pick in this week's draft, which was Desmond Bane. The Celtics will receive a future draft asset from the Grizzlies.

This was the most likely outcome after Kanter's decision to opt-in to the the remaining $5 million on the contract he signed last offseason with the Celtics. That exception will last one year. After arriving in OR as a buyout season addition, the now-28-year-old averaged 13.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. He was dealt from the New York Knicks to the Blazers before the 2019 trade deadline and helped Portland reach the Western Conference Finals, and he seemed to enjoy that playoff run.
