According to a report from a pro-government Turkish publication, Turkey have issued a warrant for the arrest of Enes Kanter.He is sought for being a member of a “terror group” according to the Daily Sabah in Turkey. Kanter has long been an outspoken critic of Turkey’s President Erdoğan and recently called him “the Hitler of our century”. He has voiced support for an opposition movement and as such has been charged with “alleged membership of an armed terrorist organization.” He was recently detained at an airport in Romania due to a canceled passport but made it back safely to the US. At this stage, Kanter is seeking American citizenship. This shouldn’t affect his basketball career.
