Kanter was waived by his most recent team, the New York Knicks, last week at the trade deadline. Kanter had an expiring contract worth $18.6 Million that proved too rich for the Knicks to be able to trade him before the deadline passed.
Per ESPN: Kanter has averaged 14 points and 10.5 rebounds — tied for 12th in the league — in just 25.6 minutes per game this season, but he ranked last out of 68 qualified centers in ESPN’s defensive real plus-minus metric. He is tied for third in the NBA in offensive rebounding (3.9 per game) since the start of the 2017-18 season.
