With the Portland Trail Blazers and Toronto Raptors each four wins away from a matchup in the NBA Finals, plans are being made to ensure Blazers starting center Enes Kanter can safely participate in all the games. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden wrote a letter Tuesday to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on behalf of Kanter encouraging “safe passage” for the Turkish center to Canada for all games. “I ask your government to facilitate Mr. Kanter’s safe passage to and from Canada should the Portland Trail Blazers play the Toronto Raptors in Toronto, Canada, in the upcoming NBA Finals,” the letter states. “I also urge your government to state publicly that it will not comply with any Interpol red notice meant to interfere with Mr. Kanter’s livelihood and to intimidate him and his family back in Turkey.”

Outspoken Turkish basketball player Enes Kanter’s Portland Trail Blazers reached the NBA’s Western Conference finals starting on Tuesday, but for the first time the series will not be televised in Turkey where he is accused of having terrorist links. S Sport, the main TV broadcaster of National Basketball Association games in Turkey, will ignore the conference final between the Blazers and defending champion Golden State Warriors to keep Kanter off Turkish screens, said network commentator Omer Sarac.
