Kanter also knows that New York hopes to attract a top free agent this summer. To have enough cap space to sign a max free agent, the Knicks would have to renounce their rights to the seven-year veteran. That’s why Kanter paused Thursday when asked if he sees himself as part of the Knicks’ future. “I would love to be part of the future of the Knicks, of course,” he says.

Storyline: Enes Kanter Free Agency
Kanter supports Fethullah Gulen, a U.S.-based Turkish cleric whom the government accuses of masterminding a failed military coup in 2016. Gulen has denied the allegation. Kanter’s criticism of Erdogan and support for Gulen have made him a target for the Turkish government, he says, leading to prosecutors seeking criminal charges against he and his father. It’s also made Kanter a target of death threats on social media. “I’m getting hundreds a day,” he says. “I’m not saying they could [harm me] here, but there could be one crazy supporter that can do anything.”

Another former NBA player, Hedo Turkoglu, is now a chief adviser to Erdogan. He’s criticized you on Twitter. What’s your message to him? Enes Kanter: I called him a lapdog because he has to follow every comment that Erdogan gives him. We were really good friends back in 2011. We played on the same national team. All the stuff that’s going on right now, he cannot really talk freely because of his fear of President Erdogan. He’s losing so many fans, so many friends in America because of what he’s doing.
