ANDnes Freedom (formerly known as Enes Kanter) is in a delicate sporting situation. The center Turkish, ex of boston celticsis a free agent and so far there has been no no team who is interested in your services.

Despite contributing in offensive tasks, his facet defense weighs him down and that has made it difficult for him to have more prominence in the league. However, that doesn’t seem be the reason for which right now he is without a team in the .

The player himself has spoken from Israel and has indicated that yesused criticism of China (the Chinese market is very important for the league), they may have closed the doors: “Free agency has been open for a month. Normally, You should have already received offers. This summer I did not receive a single offer. The reason is that he spoke against what is happening in China in the last few months. The Chinese market is a big part of the NBA’s business. Therefore, they will allow you to speak freely about anything you wish until you economically harm. As soon as you do that, they’ll cut you off. It’s very sad and unacceptable.”.

Unlikely return to Europe

The option of return to Europe, doesn’t seem viable for Freedom either. And it is that the Turkish is contrary to the regime of Recep Erdogan, president of his country. In fact, can’t set foot in Turkey again, since it will be imprisoned.

The Euroleague is sponsored by Turkey Airlinesso playing it doesn’t seem like an option either: “I’m 30 years old. I can play another five or six years. I have no intention of giving up basketball. But I can’t go back to Turkey, it will be a one way ticket. I can’t enter Turkey and also Turkish Airlines is the main sponsor of the Euroleague,” he said.
