Kanter Remaining a Knick

Kanter Opts In to Knicks Deal

Despite Some Chatter, Enes Kanter Opts in for 2018-19 with the Knicks

Talk about a weird 24 hours.

Earlier in June, there have been rumours circulating that the Milwaukee Bucks are in the market for a big man with Enes Kanter sitting atop their wish list. Kanter, who himself was coming off a very productive season with the New York Knicks averaging 14.1-points and 11.0-rebounds per game looked to have shared interest with a cryptic post on his twitter.

Well, less than a day later all the rumours of Kanter heading to the Bucks disappeared as the veteran center exercised his $18.6-million option to remain in New York with the Knicks. With a crowded center market this offseason, it made sense for Kanter to opt-into his 2018-19 option, pushing free agency back an extra year.

Kanter came to New York a year ago in a package trade, which allowed the Knicks to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Kanter brought the Knicks some much needed toughness as well as a key presence on the glass.


Stay patient, Milwaukee.
