Enes Kanter agrees to join Trail Blazers

Free agent big man Enes Kanter is signing with the Portland Trail Blazers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. I look forward to helping the Blazers achieve the ultimate goal of competing for a championship. "Excited to meet my new teammates, coaches, staff and most importantly the fans".

The Knicks tried to find a trade partner for Kanter by the February 7 deadline, but no luck. "Let's go Rip City".

The Blazers are now sitting in fourth place in the Western Conference with a record of 33-23.

The Blazers were Kanter's choice over several serious suitors, including the Los Angeles Lakers, sources said.

Kanter, who was born in Switzerland but is a Turkish citizen, has been openly critical of the Turkish government.

Kanter averaged 14 points and 10.5 rebounds - tied for 12th in the league - in just 25.6 minutes per game this season for the Knicks.

The Blazers had originally signed Kanter to a four-year $70 million offer sheet in the summer of 2015, a figure the Oklahoma City Thunder matched in order to retain the restricted free agent's services. In fact, Kanter is even* a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/traditional/?sort=REB&dir=-1&Season=2018-19&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&PerMode=Per36&CF=GP*GE*20" * fifth in the NBA in rebounds per 36 minutes (minimum 20 games played).
