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.
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.

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.
