National Basketball Associations (NBA) The Portland Trail Blazers team has recaptured center player Enes Canter in a three-team deal.

Boston’s Celtics, Memphis’s Grizzlies and Trail Blazers have taken part in the exchange. Boston has a future draft choice from the Grizzlies, while Memphis has received Mario Heson and Desmond Bein from Portland, who were selected as number 30 in this year’s draft. “Trail Blazers” in turn acquired Kanter from “Celtics”.

The 28-year-old Kanter represented the Celtics last season, but one season earlier he played for the New York Knicks and Trail Blazers. He moved directly to Boston from the Portland team.

Last regular season, Kanters scored 8.1 points and 7.4 rebounds in an average of 16.9 minutes in 58 games. Previously, when he represented Trail Blazers, the Turkish basketball player had 22.3 minutes, 13.1 points and 8.6 balls under the baskets in 23 dues.

Meanwhile, Grizzlies newcomer Hezonja averaged 4.8 points last season and scored 3.5 rebounds. Until recently, the popular basketball viewer Bill Simons called Hezonju, in a bit ironic, one of the worst players in the league in one of his shows.

22-year-old Bain, meanwhile, is preparing for his debut in Memphis. NBA expert Kevin O’Conor described him as a high-IQ defender with strengths from the perimeter, persistent fighting and defensive play, but he mentioned the slow first step and the fact that he has relatively short hands.
