Enes Kanter is poised to become the latest former Kentucky Wildcat to cash in on a big NBA contract.

According to multiple media reports, Kanter is signing an offer sheet with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Currently a restricted free agent, Kanter is still part of the Oklahoma City Thunder unless they don't match whatever offer the Blazers give him. The Thunder will have three days to match the offer or lose him to Portland.

Kanter, who is just 23 years old, averaged 18.7 points and 11 rebounds in 26 games with OKC last season. He was traded midseason from the Utah Jazz, who originally took him third overall in the 2011 NBA Draft.

Whether Kanter stays in OKC or goes to Portland, he's about to be a very rich man.
