Kevin Knox may be joining the party in New York right when former Wildcat Enes Kanter is on his way out.

According to ESPN’s Ian Begley, Kanter “hasn’t yet made a decision” on his future with the franchise, though opposing teams expect him to opt into his $18.6 million player option.

If he does opt out, however, the Milwaukee Bucks (among others) are expected to make a push.

Lenn Robbins of MSG Networks, however, reports Kanter is expected to opt out of his contract with the Knicks.

Starting center Enes Kanter is expected to opt out as well, although Kanter has expressed a strong desire to remain in New York.

After Knox was drafted, Kanter sent out this tweet, hinting at a potential return to team up with the former Kentucky forward.

Kanter has until June 29 to make a final decision on his future with the organization. If he does opt out, he will hit the open market on July 1.

While we wait for the news, check out Kanter’s ridiculous training regimen during Ramadan, despite fasting for 17 hours a day throughout the month of June:

Go Cats.

    Kanter is a really interesting person. Still feel cheated that we did not get to see him play in a Kentucky uniform. With all the pressure of summer workouts and career decisions he must be concerned about his father who is being imprisoned as a political prisoner in Turkey.
