The Kanter 3-point storyline was probably overplayed. The Trevor Booker storyline probably under played. Just hit his third of the night.

Zach Lowe

Not surprising. RT @Aaron Falk: Kanter & the Jazz have tabled extension talks. sltrib.com/sports/1758881… http://t.co/PbwDJhQ8Ng

Enes Kanter on calling off extension negotiations with Jazz: "It’s a long process. I’m just going to wait and see." po.st/xMiIsr

Aaron Falk

Kanter & the Jazz have tabled extension talks. He'll be a restricted free agent come July. sltrib.com/sports/1758881… http://t.co/KVG2HWNzMI

Tony Jones

Snyder: playing small takes us away from strengths. Enes kanter was effective on the block. Enes is a good player and he played hard

Jonathan Feigen

The other thing K-Pap's shot does is keep his man from doubling down on Dwight, who immediately spins, dunks on Kanter.

Tony Jones

Great defense by Kanter there on Harden

Tony Jones

Favors with 8, Kanter with 6, Hayward and Burks with 4 each for the Jazz in the first period...

Aaron Falk

End of 1: Jazz 27, Rockets, 27. Derrick Favors 8p/2r/1a. Kanter 6p/2r. Dwight Howard 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting.

Tony Jones

But as I said, Kanter CAN score....so there's the conundrum

Tony Jones

Wondering who's the worse defender. Kanter, or James Harden. I'm taking votes

Tony Jones

Of course, Kanter's good on the block. And he has a mismatch against Terrence Jones

Tony Jones

Kanter's making it easy on Howard. All but giving him an invitation baseline for a reverse dunk

Jody Genessy

Enes Kanter misses his first corner 3.

Jody Genessy

Tonight's season-opening starting lineups: Jazz: Burke, Burks, Hayward, Kanter, Favors Rockets: Beverley, Harden, Ariza, Jones, Howard.

Tony Jones

Burke, Burks, Hayward, Kanter and Favors are the starters tonight

Aaron Falk

Jazz will start Burke, Burks, Hayward, Favors and Kanter. Newcomer Joe Ingles is active. Inactives: Jordan Hamilton and Toure' Murry.

Hayward's advice to Kanter? "Just not worry about (the contract). It’s over with and now he just has to play this season as a Jazz player."

Demian Belmonte

Kanter no renueva con los Jazz y será agente libre en el próximo verano: bit.ly/1Dxpvts vía @Demian Belmonte

Aaron Falk

Hayward's advice to Kanter, on facing RFA: Don't think about it. which is easy “as long as you guys don’t ask questions about it.”

Agent Max Ergul said Enes Kanter's priority is to play well and win this year with Jazz. "Enes's biggest concern and focus was the season."

Jody Genessy

Enes Kanter's agent told me it was a mutual agreement between the big man's camp and the Jazz to end contract extension negotiations.

Steve Kyler

Kanter makes $5.7 million this year and likely gets a qualifying offer of $7.4 million in July.

Jody Genessy

Enes Kanter and the Jazz couldn't agree on an extension, so the big man will become a restricted free agent next summer, per @Adrian Wojnarowski

Steve Kyler

As @NateDuncanNBA pointed out here: -- basketballinsiders.com/nba-rookie-ext… -- Kanter's Qualifying Offer is likely equal to his value - smarter to wait

Aaron Falk

Ergul had high praise for Dennis Lindsey and Quin Snyder, and said Kanter is "very happy with the direction."

Aaron Falk

Kanter's agent, Max Ergul, mentioned Kanter's potential with a new system/coach and the new TV deal as some factors in their decision.

Aaron Falk

As @Adrian Wojnarowski first reported (sports.yahoo.com/news/jazz-cent…), Enes Kanter and the Jazz won't reach an extension before Friday's deadline.

Adrian Wojnarowski

Yahoo Sources: As talks end on contract extension, Jazz center Enes Kanter will enter 2015 restricted free agency. yhoo.it/1nQngPZ

Jody Genessy

The Jazz have one week to work out extensions for fourth-year players Enes Kanter and Alec Burks. They'll become RFA if that doesn't happen.

Aaron Falk

Eric Bledsoe just beat Enes Kanter on a jump ball, and it leads to a Phoenix bucket. Suns 94, Jazz 91 with about 3 minutes left to play.

Paul Coro

Bledsoe just outleaped Kanter on a jump ball ... easily. Markieff 3 makes it a 94-91 Suns lead with 3:20 to go.

Tony Jones

Enes Kanter is 4-14 in this game. Simply can't finish over the length of Alex Len and Miles Plumlee

Tony Jones

That was Gobert's fourth foul, so Kanter's back in the game for him

Paul Coro

UTA 51, PHX 47 at half. Dragic: 11p, 2a; Markieff: 7p, 2r; Green: 7p, 3r; Hayward: 13p, 5-6 FG; Kanter: 8p, 3r. Fastbreak pts: PHX 6, UTA 0.

Paul Coro

The #Suns are closing the half with Markieff at center and he has outworked Kanter on three consecutive trips up and down the court.
