Jazz center Enes Kanter has officially been named to Turkey's 2011 EuroBasket roster.

Kanter will join Hedo Turkoglu (Orlando), Omer Asik (Chicago), Semih Erden (Cleveland) and Ersan Ilyasova (Milwaukee) on the team.

The tournament is scheduled August 31-September 18 in Lithuania. If Kanter plays, it could mark his first significant 5-on-5 action in more than a year.

Jazz center Mehmet Okur is not listed on Turkey's roster.
