Enes Kanter hasn’t yet made a decision on his $18.6 million player option. Opposing teams expect him to opt in. But if Kanter opts out, multiple teams – including Milwaukee – have expressed interest internally in discussing a potential contract with the 26-year-old center.

Kanter is only 26 and is coming off a season in which averaged a double-double (14.1 points, 11 rebounds per game). He would absolutely be in demand. However, he seems to have some visions for his own future with the Knicks.
