Enes Kanter signs with Portland Trail Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers have signed free agent center Enes Kanter, it was announced today by president of basketball operations Neil Olshey. "He's an impact player with Playoff experience that will be an excellent fit with our style of play". He's averaging 14.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game and has recorded 25 double-doubles this season.

He will wear No. 00 for the Trail Blazers. He was being pursued by a bevy of teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers.

Lufthansa Airlines Sues Customer Who Skipped Part Of His Return Flight
Lufthansa is suing a man who intentionally missed a connecting flight from Frankfurt to Oslo in order to receive a cheaper fare. A Berlin district court reportedly dismissed the lawsuit in December, but Lufthansa told CNN it has appealed the decision.

The Blazers signed Kanter as a restricted free agent to a four-year, $70 million offer sheet in 2015.

An eight-year veteran, Kanter has played in 560 career games, including 208 starts, with the Utah Jazz, Thunder and Knicks.

Michael Jordan Reminds Everyone Why He’s The GOAT Of Basketball
While this remains to be one of the biggest coups in league history, Jordan allegedly did get a lot of help from the association. Ladies and gentlemen, that's just a classic line from Jordan.

NY released Kanter, 26, last week when it couldn't find a trade partner.

The Blazers are 33-23, tied with the Houston Rockets for fourth in the Western Conference entering Wednesday's games.

China's Xi to meet top US trade officials
Last year, China added surface-to-air missiles to the contested island, one of three that the Chinese military fortified in 2018. The so-called freedom-of-navigation patrols were reported earlier Monday by Reuters, which cited an unidentified USA official.

Enes Kanter is heading Northwest. But after playing in 44 games - including 23 starts - Kanter fell out of favor when the team made a decision to shift its priorities toward developing their young big men. In an effort to experiment with his young core, coach David Fizdale would play him in just three games over a 12-game span, prompting Kanter to publicly voice his frustrations to the NY media over a lack of playing time and those receiving court time ahead of him, namely recent acquisition DeAndre Jordan. This is a really solid addition for the Blazers, who now have Kanter, Jusuf Nurkić, Meyers Leonard and Jake Layman manning the front court.
