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

Celtics trade Enes Kanter to Trail Blazers in three-team deal with Grizzlies

Enes Kanter #11 of the Boston Celtics reacts to a play during the game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on February 23, 2020 in Los Angeles, California.

Portland is acquiring Boston's Turkish center Enes Kanter, while Memphis gets from Portland Croatian forward Mario Hezonjia and Desmond Bane, the recent 30th pick of the 2020 National Basketball Association draft.

The Grizzlies will acquire Mario Hezonjia and the 30th overall pick in this week's draft, which was Desmond Bane. Now he rejoins Portland, where he spent one season before signing a two-year deal with the Celtics prior to last season.

CDC Cancels Thanksgiving: Agency Advises Against Holiday Travel Amid COVID Surge
Are cases high or increasing in your community or your destination? COVID-19 cases have been surging across the U.S. Including when you use public transportation and when you're around people you don't live with.

As part of the transaction, the Celtics will receive the better draft pick between Houston's second round selection in 2023, and whichever 2023 second round draft pick is worst between Memphis or Dallas.

Kanter's departure opens more playing time for third-year big man Robert Williams, who was slowed by a hip injury for most of last season but showed promise during the NBA's restart in Orlando. In his lone season in Boston, Kanter mostly came off the bench, averaging 8.1 points and 7.1 rebounds in 16.9 minutes per game. He helped the Trail Blazers reach the Western Conference Finals, where they were swept by the Golden State Warriors.
