NBA Blockbuster Rumor: Josh Smith To Timberwolves For Enes Kanter

As we near the 2011 NBA Draft, expect Josh Smith trade rumors to just get bigger and bigger. That's been the case so far, as we've now reached Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reporting that the Atlanta Hawks are "dangling Josh Smith to Minnesota for No. 2 pick, eyeing Enes Kanter."

The six-foot-11 Kentucky Wildcats big was ruled ineligible before the 2010-11 season, so he's not exactly the surest thing in this year's draft. He's been projected by almost everybody to be gone by pick No. 3. For more on Kanter, read up on his Draft Express profile and Tom Ziller's look at how he helps define this year's class as "The Year of the Big Man."

Could the Hawks somehow find a way to one-up the Atlanta Falcons draft day trade for Julio Jones? God help us all.
