A few days before his father was indicted by the Turkish government, Enes Kanter hosted the Enes Kanter Camp organized by NYC Basketball Kids and Playbook in New York City over the weekend. He took a few minutes to answer some questions from ESPN.com. Here, Kanter talks about his conversations with injured Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis: "Bill was like you have a problem in Turkey right now, we won't send you to Turkey. But maybe in the future, you can be the president of Turkey," Kanter said. "He actually watches the Knicks. He said, ‘I watch you – you play hard.' I said, ‘Hey, I appreciate that.'"

In addition to New York, Kanter has also been invited to state senates in New Mexico and Pennsylvania.

Trae Young was asked on SiriusXM NBA Radio about meeting David Fizdale and the Knicks during his workout. "I definitely was very energized meeting him as well. It was great getting to meet coach Fizdale and go out to dinner and meet the whole front office. Really got a good feel and vibe for the whole organization. They're very interested in me as well but you never know what's going to happen on Thursday night."

Back in the Bronx with another gorgeous day. On the field going through some early work is Luis Severino. Found it interesting that he was doing a little base running; tagging from third, running from home. He's scheduled to pitch in an NL park next week. Yankees don't need any more pitchers straining hamstrings running the bases after Masahiro Tanaka landed on the DL doing the same.

He took a few minutes to answer some questions from ESPN.com. Here, Kanter talks about what he's learned about new coach David Fizdale thus far: "There's two different coaches. One (prefers) a coach-player (relationship). One is more about friendship. I think with him, it's friendship. It's more than (just) coach-player," Kanter said Saturday. "When I first met him, I got so much positive energy. I think he's changing the culture already with the Knicks. With his mentality, I just think it's going to be awesome."

He took a few minutes to answer some questions from ESPN.com. Here, Kanter reiterates that he'd still prefer a long-term contract as opposed to a one-year deal. He has until June 29 to decide on his 2018-19 player option, worth $18.6 million. "Obviously, I want to be here. It's just that I would feel better and feel more secure and feel more comfortable if I signed (a contract for) multiple, two or three whatever, years," Kanter said Saturday. "Think about it. Next year, if you get hurt, then what? I know you can't worry about it but it's always in the back of your head like, ‘Man, if I get hurt, what's going to happen?'"

He took a few minutes to answer some questions from ESPN.com. Here, Kanter talks about how he is approaching his decision to opt in or out to his $18.6 million option for 2018-19: "The draft is (June 21) so after the 21st people are going to have a better idea what they want to do with the team. So I am waiting for after the 21st, between 21st and 29th. After 29th, I will make a decision," Kanter said on Saturday. "It's (pointless) to worry about (the decision) now because things can change so much between the 21st and 29th."

He took a few minutes to answer some questions from ESPN.com. Here, Kanter talks about why he publicly challenged LeBron James to sign with the Knicks: "I will say this man: he is trying to be the best ever. If you win in New York, then people can say, ‘OK you're the goat. You're the best ever.'" Kanter said on Saturday. "There's no way he's going to win for whatever more years in Cleveland. (Michael) Jordan won three (titles with the Bulls after his first three-peat in Chicago) but I don't think it's going to happen in Cleveland. So I just think if he wins in a bigger city like New York, it would be amazing." Kanter would likely need to take a pay-cut to give the Knicks a chance to sign James, something he's aware of. The Knicks of course, have no chance to sign James this summer, though it's possible that they get a meeting with James because of his relationship with new coach David Fizdale and the front office's relationship with others close to James.

He took a few minutes to answer some questions from ESPN.com. Here, Kanter talks about what David Fizdale has told him about his role: "Actually, he wanted me to start taking threes. That's what he said. He actually texted me too and he was like, ‘Hey man, have you been shooting threes? Have you been practicing threes?' I think he wants me to shoot more threes now because he wants me to stretch the court," Kanter said Saturday. "I think teams will have an even tougher time if I spread out the court and start shooting threes. I think that's what he thinks." Kanter has been working on his 3-point shot.
