Enes Kanter will not be a member of the Turkey national basketball team at the 2015 European Basketball Championships in September. The country’s star player has been excluded due to “political reasons.”
We don’t know what that means, but Kanter told Today’s Zaman, “The reason why I was excluded from the national team is my values and political views.”
Fans have started a hashtag in support of Kanter. You can join in on the movement by tweeting #EnesKanterMilliForma.
It’s #FreeEnes all over again.
