Enes Kanter says free agents are scared of Knicks because of ownership

By STEFAN BONDY
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS |

Despite all that New York has to offer in money and spotlight, the Knicks’ chase for superstar free agents has been defined by rejection.

According to Enes Kanter, who discussed this topic with his peers, there’s a specific reason for the failures: James Dolan.

“Not many people know that, but players talk. From different teams, they talk,” Kanter said on the Full 48 podcast with Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck. “I’m not blaming anybody. I had an amazing time with the Knicks. But other teammates I talked to or if they’re on different teams, they always said, ‘Amazing city, MSG is amazing. Everything is so good. But the ownership.’ They always keep saying, ‘But the ownership.’”

Imagine if he put the same effort that he does into social media and trolling the Knicks and trying to be a wrestler and parlayed all that time into practicing defense or guarding the pick and roll.

He was just reporting what other players have said. They all talk about this stuff amongst themselves. I’m glad he came out and said it. Maybe it’s another nail in Dolan’s coffin which will lead him to sell the team.

If he didn’t care, he wouldn’t have said anything. He did us a favor.

This is the worst possible time for Dolan to sell. We have a competent (or at least rational) FO that’s finally trying to rebuild through the draft and Dolan is not meddling, in fact he seems supportive of that rebuild and we know when the time comes he will be willing to spend dollars. I can live with the occasional embarrassing Dolan appearance in the news if we keep going in that direction. He seems to have learned from his mistakes basketball-wise.

Whoever buys the Knicks will have a huge ego and will try to impose his/her own ignorant vision and will be impatient to compete instantly and to show the world who’s the alpha in this thing. We don’t need another meddling owner ruining what could be a good thing, like what we saw in Houston this summer.

Free agents wouldn’t give a damn about Dolan if we had a winning product. The only reason they didn’t come here (with the exception of Amar’e) is because Miami in 2010 and Brooklyn in 2019 had just made the playoffs while we sucked.

The max target, Durant denied that Dolan was a factor. What other players could he be referring to? You think he had a heart to heart with Kawhi?

Well we havent put out a respectable team for over 5 years so of course the ownership gonna get blamed when you keep hiring the wrong people.

Why is this even a thread? Lol Perry and Fiz need to actually prove they can produce a solid basketball team then MAYBE stars will consider but until then nobody gonna wanna play for a tanking team.

If we are already established and producing a winning basketball team then players wont be as skittish as they would be to turn a whole franchise around and be the savior of NY. Thats alot to ask for from a player.

The jury is still out on them. Heck, the jury is out on them if they are capable of hiring a good coach and developmental team.

Scouting seems good so far.

He looked better in the ring then he did on defense. And he looked like utter garbage in the ring.

Ok Enes...earlier this year:


New York Knicks center Enes Kanter claims to know which free agent All-Star will be signing with the team this summer.

In an exclusive interview with Sports Illustrated's SI Now, Kanter said he has inside information regarding who the Knicks will be adding to the roster in July, but that he couldn't give away any of that information.

"I actually do have an idea [of who will sign], but I cannot really tell," Kanter said. "It's a secret, but it's going to blow people's minds when he signs. I can't give no hint because I'll get burned big time."
