NBA free agency rumors: Multiple teams interested in signing Knicks center Enes Kanter if he opts out
Enes Kanter could have multiple options if he opts out of his contract with the Knicks.
Kanter has yet to make a decision about his $18.6 million player option for 2018-19, according to a report from ESPN. But, if he does decide to enter free agency, multiple teams, including the Bucks, would be interested in signing him.
Kanter was originally selected with the third overall pick by the Jazz in the 2011 NBA Draft. He spent three and a half seasons in Utah before he was dealt to Oklahoma City in February 2015.
The Knicks finished 2017-18 with a 29-53 and missed the playoffs for a fifth straight season. They fired Jeff Hornacek in mid-April and replaced him with former Grizzlies coach David Fizdale.
I wasn’t sharp, but also I didn’t have luck on my side, Verlander said. I made an adjustment during the third inning that I thought was good, but it was too little too late.
Verlander (9-4) gave up the most runs (5) and hits (9) of any of his 23 starts since his trade to Houston late last summer. He struck out eight in a season-low five innings after coming in with a major league-leading 1.82 ERA — though it was 4.34 in six June starts. The Astros have lost his last three starts.
Matt Duffy finished with three hits, including two in the first two innings, to help the Rays win for the seventh time in eight tames to move to .500 (41-41) for the first time since June 1.
