Kanter Signs with Blazers

After Being Bought Out by Knicks, Blazers Sign Enes Kanter

Following his buyout with the New York Knicks, free-agent center Enes Kanter has signed a deal with the Portland Trail Blazers. It is a big get for the Blazers as Kanter reportedly had several suitors, including the Lakers.

Both sides seem excited about the addition. “He’s a bone fide player in this league Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. “He’s a great rebounder, a great offensive rebounder. He can score in a short amount of time. And I think the role that we have for him will really be good for him, but it will really be good for us, as far as providing a different dimension off our bench.”

As for Kanter, he took to social media to voice his enthusiasm. “I am pleased to have signed with the Blazers…I look forward to competing for a championship.”

Kanter likely doesn’t automatically make the Blazers a title contender. After all, he will be coming off of the bench as Jusuf Nurkic’s backup; however, he is a valuable piece to a team that has not always gotten consistent production off of their bench.

This season, in very sporadic minutes for the Knicks, Kanter averaged 14 points and 10.5 rebounds per game, only appearing in 44 games.
