During his visit to Israel, prominent China’s slave labor critic Enes Kanter Freedom talked to the local outlet Walla. He discussed various topics including EuroLeague:

“Keep in mind that I can’t enter Turkey and that Turkish Airlines is the name sponsor of EuroLeague,” the free-agent NBA center said on potentially exploring options outside of the NBA.

“Honestly, I have loved Panathinaikos for many years. As a child, I watched many of their games and of Maccabi Tel Aviv.”

Enes Kanter Freedom – an outspoken human rights activist – was traded by the Boston Celtics to Houston Rockets at the trading deadline. The Rockets waived him on Feb. 14.

The NBA big man has played 11 seasons for 5 teams, including the Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz. He has averaged 11.2 points and 7.8 rebounds in 748 regular-season games.
