There’s another reason Malone still weighs 256 pounds — his playing weight. One of his new projects is mentoring the Jazz’s young players — specifically power forward Derrick Favors and center Enes Kanter. "I always had a suspicion, at some point, I’d be back involved with some organization," Malone said. "When I stepped back on the floor, I wanted to look like a coach. I wanted to look like I belonged. I thought it might help the young guys listen to me." Salt Lake Tribune

Stars Hedo Turkoglu, Ersan Ilyasova and Omer Asik headline an impressive 20-strong preliminary squad for EuroBasket 2013 that the Turkish federation made public on Wednesday. The list of Turkey head coach Bogdan Tanjevic is an ambitious mix of old and new with the only big-name absence being that of Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter, which was however already announced in the spring.

Enes Kanter's recovery from April shoulder surgery is ahead of schedule, his agent said Wednesday, but the Utah Jazz center may not be cleared to play until August. That means Kanter will not participate in the Orlando Summer League July 7 through 12, although Kanter's agent, Max Ergul, said it was unlikely the Turkish big man would have played that week even if healthy.

By mid-afternoon Wednesday, Enes Kanter was alert in his hospital room, watching a movie. Kanter underwent surgery to repair a dislocated left shoulder earlier in the day in Chicago. His agent called the procedure "very simple" and said it "went perfect." But, as the Utah Jazz announced a day earlier, their amiable backup center will miss the remainder of the season and is unlikely to return to the team before the end of year. Salt Lake Tribune

Kanter’s agent, Max Ergul, said the second-year Jazz center would remain in Chicago for the foreseeable future to rehab the shoulder, which he injured while diving for a loose ball against Phoenix on March 27. Ergul said he did not know when Kanter would return to Salt Lake City. "He has no reason right now," Ergul said. "His medical staff is here [in Chicago], his rehab staff is here. He will start with that Friday." Salt Lake Tribune
