The 6-foot-11 Kanter is averaging 14 points and 7.9 rebounds. He was acquired along with Steve Novak from the Utah Jazz in a trade at the deadline last week.

Analysis: Snyder said the two spoke before the team held its first practice after the All-Star break Wednesday, and they're ''in a good place.'' Kanter told the Salt Lake Tribune he would like to be traded before Thursday's deadline. He has been in a frontcourt rotation with Rudy Gobert, Derrick Favors and Trevor Booker. Kanter is averaging 13.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 27.1 minutes this season.

Nov. 22 10:16 PM PT11:16 PM MT12:16 AM CT1:16 AM ET6:16 GMT14:16 11:16 PM MST1:16 AM EST10:16 UAE07:161:16 ET12:16 AM CT4:16 - Kanter had 18 points Friday.
Analysis: Kanter could face Turkish countryman Omer Asik on Saturday but he may not. Asik has been out with back problems so Kanter's fantasy owners can take advantage of the hampered fellow Turk.
