Enes Kanter met with Knicks’ GM to discuss about his future

The big man did not ask for a trade

Turkish big man Enes Kanter has met with New York Knicks GM Scott Perry on New Year’s Eve to discuss about his future with the team. Kanter spoke to the reporters about this meeting but clarified that he didn’t ask to be traded:

“I did not ask for a trade, no. I like it here a lot. But again, in the end, we all are competitors, basketball players. I like it here so much, but again I want to win. I want this team to get to the playoffs one day. This is my blood, man, I’m sorry. If anyone asks anything else, I’m not going to do it. I’m going out there to get a win every time. “I even asked Scott, if you were in my situation, what would you do?’’ Kanter said. “He said, ‘the whole league knows you. Right now, we know that you are a very, very good basketball player. Now I want you to go out there and try to have that good character, try to be a good teammate, and try to help all the people.’ I understand we’re not winning a lot right now. But I guess it’s all for the young guys.”
