It’s time to let Enes Kanter go
With rookie center Mitchell Robinson playing better than anyone expected, the New York Knicks might want to think about trading veteran center Enes Kanter at some point this season before the trade deadline.
Kanter has been a double-double machine for the Knicks, but it’s now obvious that head coach David Fizdale seems to favor Robinson given the fact that he can mold the 20 year-old.
Kanter’s contract is almost up
The good news for the Knicks is that this is the final year of Kanter’s contract. So this makes it easy for them to trade him. Not only is he a good player, but he’s attractive to other teams because he has an expiring contract.
It’s obvious that Kanter isn’t happy about being benched over the course of the past four games, so let him go play somewhere where he can start.
Knicks better not alienate Kanter
Kanter has done nothing but praised the Knicks and loves playing in New York. He’s not happy about being benched and has been as professional as he can about the entire situation.
If Fizdale doesn’t plan on giving Kanter his starting job back, the most respectable thing to do would be to trade him away.
