Report: Thunder discussing trading for Enes Kanter rather than Brook Lopez

Will the Thunder trade Reggie Jackson, Perry Jones and Kendrick Perkins for Brook Lopez?

Not so fast.

Enes Kanter, who wants out of Utah, could be headed to Oklahoma City instead.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

Jody Genessy of the Deseret News:

Kanter could make a little more sense for the Thunder. He’s younger and cheaper than Lopez, and he shouldn’t require Oklahoma City to surrender as much. As the Thunder are headed toward paying the luxury tax, cost could be a prime factor.

It’s not clear whether Jackson would go to the Jazz, but they already have Dante Exum and Trey Burke. This could just be about improving an asset.
