Enes Kanter will not travel with the Knicks to London where they will face the Wizards on January 17.
Because of a certain "lunatic," Kanter does not feel it would be safe there. The Knicks agree, so he will remain in the States and practice during their trip. Kanter is of course referring to the Turkish president who he says has a lot of spies there so his life could easily be in danger. Kanter has openly spoke out against Turkey's government and the sensitive dictator recently even went as far as putting Kanter's father in jail on a 15 year sentence out of spite even though his father openly supported the government and publicly "disowned" Enes Kanter.
