Former Utah Jazz Center Enes Kanter Rips the Organization

Brian A. Westerholt/Getty Images(SALT LAKE CITY) -- After spending the first 3 1/2 seasons with the Utah Jazz, center Enes Kanter is playing some of the best basketball of his career since being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Kanter is thoroughly enjoying playing for a new team.

"I love it," Kanter said of his change of scenery. "It's a team I've never experienced before and I actually like playing basketball there. I'm just so comfortable and everything is in the right place. I'm just really happy to be there."

The number two overall pick by the Jazz back in 2011, Kanter played solid basketball, but never quite lived up to expectations. But with the Thunder, he's averaging a career-high 17.6 points and 10.8 rebounds per game, also a career-high.

"I think the difference is, I like playing basketball there," Kanter said. "I think that's the most important thing. I never liked playing basketball before in my NBA career and this is the first time I felt like playing basketball there, for my team, for the fans, for my teammates for my coaches, for everybody. So, that's the first time."

Kanter will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season.
