Enes Kanter Says He Would’ve Been Killed If He’d Been Extradited Back to Turkey

Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter believes he would have been killed if authorities sent him to Turkey after his passport got canceled last month. 

TMZ Sports passed along comments the 25-year-old Switzerland native, who’s represented Turkey at the international level but remains at odds with the current Turkish government, made to Vice News about his detainment in Romania.

“I would be in a jail,” Kanter said, “and probably the second day you’ll hear from the news, ‘Oh, he just got poisoned and he just died. He got food poisoning.’ Or, ‘He was [depressed] and hanged himself.'”
