The NBA worked with the state department to ensure Kanter's safe release. Hopefully a birthday cake was waiting in London. What a day. https://t.co/cFU9Fz3bsD— Benjamin Hoffman (@BenHoffmanNYT) May 20, 2017
Enes Kanter was released from Romania and landed in London where he might also celebrate his birthday
Per NY Times, “At around 5 p.m., he left the airport on a flight to London,” Mr. Badila continued. “While he was at the airport he wasn’t detained or locked up, he was allowed to wander around, but he couldn’t enter the country.”
Kanter was in the midst of a tour for his Enes Kanter Light Foundation when he arrived in Bucharest, the Romanian capital, and was subsequently detained.
