The new Boston Celtics member Enes Kanter says the reason why players do not want to play for the New York Knicks is the management, namely owner James Dolan.

“Not many people know that, but players talk. From different teams, they talk. I’m not blaming anybody. I had an amazing time with the Knicks. But other teammates that I talked to or if they’re on different teams, they always said, ‘Amazing city, MSG is amazing everything is so good, but the ownership.’ They would just keep saying, ‘But the ownership.’ … Some of the players I guess are just scared to come here and don’t even want to deal with that”, the 27-year-old forward said on Bleacher Report’s The Full 48 podcast.

Last season Kanter averaged 11.4 points and 9.7 rebounds with the Portland Trail Blazers last season.
