CelebNSports247.com reports that Enes Kanter claims he signed with the Celtics over returning to the Blazers because he was only given six minutes to decide whether or not to re-sign with Portland.
Well, Enes Kanter is heading to Boston but still says that he felt pressured to make a decision so he told them no.
Then, Portland’s face of the franchise, Damian Lillard, was asked what was wrong with the Blazers front office for only giving Kanter six minutes to decide if he wanted to return. He confirmed that Kanter was not given just six minutes to make his decision.
Sometimes there’s a chance you lose out on two ppl because you’re waiting on one. What I can confirm is that my boy was not given 6 mins lol… he was prob down to 6 mins from the original 45 https://t.co/vDn4cfxVHg

Basically, Kanter was undecided and even with 45 mins, he got down to the last 6 minutes and the answer was still no. However, his statement about only having 6-minutes was good drama for sports fans.
