Knicks reportedly planning buyout for Enes Kanter

Enes Kanter

The New York Knicks are reportedly prepared to work on a buyout for Enes Kanter absent a trade partner.

Kanter has been out of the Knicks’ rotation for a few weeks and has actively become a nuisance for the franchise. Though the Knicks have been shopping Kanter, his $18.6 million salary makes it tough for him to be moved, even if his deal is expiring.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says the two sides are expected begin working on a buyout after Thursday’s trade deadline passes.

Kanter has no future with the Knicks and is eager to move on. The question then becomes who will pick him up. He’s a good scorer and rebounder, but his defense — particularly in pick and roll — leaves a lot to be desired.
