Enes Kanter caused a stir late Thursday night when the Knicks big man posted a cryptic tweet implying he may be taking his talents to Milwaukee.
Kanter coyly posted an emoji of a deer without any caption or context, sending overreacting fans into a frenzy. He then quickly replied to that tweet jokingly saying he mistakenly clicked the deer emoji instead of the sleeping “Zzz” one.
Both tweets have since been deleted. Althogh, Kanter did eventually post a tweet with the sleeping “Zzz” emoji.
The Knicks are currently waiting for Kanter to make a decision on whether or not he’ll opt into his $18.6 million contract for next season. While Kanter could decline to opt into his deal and hit free agency (and theoretically sign with the Bucks), it’s unlikely he’ll receive an offer more than the $18.6 million he currently has on the table.
