Enes Kanter will exercise his player option for $18.6 million and return to the Knicks for the 2018-19 season.
There were rumors that Kanter would opt out and sign elsewhere, but that $18.6 million is a valuable incentive to stay. Kanter provided great offense with the Knicks last season, averaging 14.1 points and 11.0 rebounds in only 25.8 minutes per game, but Kanter still leaves much to be desired on the defensive front.
