Enes Kanter has been quite critical of the Turkish government and the country's president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Due to his critical comments, the New York Knicks player recently skipped a trip to London with the team due to a fear of potentially being assassinated. Now it is being reported that Turkey is seeking an international arrest warrant against Kanter, saying he is part of a terrorist organization.

According to ESPN, the government says Kanter has ties to Fethullah Gulen which was the group responsible for an unsuccessful coup back in 2016. Kanter is aware of the report and commented on the situation via Twitter.
