Northwest Notes: Kanter, Rubio, Nuggets, Jazz, Blazers

Enes Kanter remains hopeful that he will be able to reunite with his family in the United States someday, reports Erik Horne of NewsOK.com. Currently, Kanter’s father sits in a Turkey jail, awaiting interrogation on Monday. Two and a half weeks ago, the Thunder big man’s passport was canceled by the Turkish government and he could not gain access to Romania. Homeland Security, a team of lawyers, and the NBA teamed up to arrange his speedy return to the United States, but now Kanter’s father is in trouble. Kanter’s mother, younger sister, and brother also currently remain in Turkey.

“If you’re a kid, woman or child, if you’re speaking out against them, they’ll arrest you,” Kanter said.

    It’s sick what’s going on with Kanter’s family and Turkey. I can’t pretend to know all the going ons over there or what his family truly thinks and how they’ve acted privately, but publicly they said everything they were supposed to and it didn’t matter. They’ve stated support for their president (?), they’ve called Enes out for being wrong to criticize him, and hell, they’ve even gone as far as to disown Enes from the family. And the father still gets taken away for interrogation. Just sick.

    Lol so Rubio wants a say in the FO?? He’s not even the 3rd best player on that team. Some teams don’t let their best player have input…
