Enes Kanter offers interesting explanation for leaving Portland
Enes Kanter had the option to remain with the Portland Trail Blazers, but he claims he was not given nearly enough time to make a decision on his future.
Kanter agreed to a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics on Monday. He told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated, however, that he had the chance to remain with Portland, but was given six minutes to decide whether he wanted to stay.

NBA free agency moves quickly. One wonders if Kanter was prompted to make a quick decision because the Blazers were making a big trade involving a center on Monday, and perhaps their ability to swing it depended on Kanter’s plans.
