Report Celtics interested in Enes Kanter if he is bought out

Report Celtics interested in Enes Kanter if he is bought out

Now that the 3 p.m. ET NBA trade deadline has passed, the Knicks are parting ways with center Enes Kanter.

With the top contenders in the East making some big moves, this would be a huge pickup for the Celtics if they can sign Kanter if the Knicks and him do, indeed pursue a buyout. He turns 27 in May.

In his 25.6 minutes per game with NY this season he is averaging 14.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, and 1.9 assists.

Matthews, per multiple reports, was headed to the Indiana Pacers in a deal that could be done imminently. They're second in the league this season, averaging 19,941 fans per home game.

Kanter has appeared in just three of the Knicks' last 12 games. Kanter said on twitter, NY will always have a special place in my heart and I look forward to returning here and playing in front of these awesome fans again.

That order, called an administrative stay, was necessary so that the justices could review court filings from each party. The law compelled abortion providers to get surgical privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinics.

A ton of contending teams will certainly come calling - most likely headed by the Houston Rockets.

Enes Kanter and the Knicks could be headed toward a contract buyout.

More recently, veteran center DeAndre Jordan - acquired from Dallas in the Kristaps Porzingis trade - has started ahead of Kanter; Fizdale said he wanted Jordan to help the young Knicks learn how to defend. Vonleh, a free agent this summer, is having a strong season (8.6 points, 8.5 rebounds per game) in NY. He's also strong on the glass and can get offensive rebounds.

The Knicks also made a decision to keep Jordan, despite suggestions that the veteran would be bought out.
