Dusan Cantekin Rumors
Pedja Materic: Nihad Djedovic, Paul Lacombe, Tomislav Zubcic, Ilkan Karaman and Dusan Cantekin were in NYC, preparing for workouts with NBA teams!
The NBA is showing passing interest at best in Dusan Cantekin, even though he is 7-foot-4, 245 pounds and is coordinated with good mobility, even though, if it hasn’t been mentioned, he is 7-foot-4. A member of the Turkish national team, Cantekin needs to get a lot stronger, has a very small wingspan (6-foot-11) and was barely noticeable at the adidas Eurocamp in Italy earlier this week despite facing competition that mostly won’t come close to the NBA. But that ability to move at that size makes him a potential investment. “He’s a kid you really want to like, but there are too many question marks,” said one NBA rep who scouted Eurocamp. “Even a mid-to-late second-round pick could be very risky.”
