Celtics Will Pursue Enes Kanter Following Potential Knicks Buyout

Celtics Will Pursue Enes Kanter Following Potential Knicks Buyout

The New York Knicks acquired Matthews in the Kristaps Porzingis trade and it is widely reported that the Indiana Pacers are already closing in.

This was an expected move, but it shouldn't take long for Kanter to sign with a new team.

Enes Kanter's time with the Knicks has come to a close.

Kanter, someone who can put up double-double performances any night, is reportedly drawing interest from the Boston Celtics and several other teams.

The 26-year-old has appeared in just three of the Knicks' past 12 games and has been vocal about his displeasure over the reduced role. Kanter made headlines last month after refusing to participate in the Knicks' game against the Wizards in London because he said he feared for his life due to his opposition to the current regime in his native Turkey.

The Knicks have been trying to move Kanter for a few weeks, but his contract made things hard, according to the report. They're second in the league this season, averaging 19,941 fans per home game.

Enes Kanter and the Knicks could be headed toward a contract buyout. He's also strong on the glass and can get offensive rebounds.

Having said that, the NBA Trade Deadline is not the end of the excitement. Vonleh, a free agent this summer, is having a strong season (8.6 points, 8.5 rebounds per game) in NY.

For the Knicks, the point was to create cap space for two max free agents and make a run at some combination of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis.
