  • Oklahoma City Thunder center Kanter says father arrested in Turkey

    Turkish NBA player Enes Kanter, an outspoken critic of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said Friday his father had been arrested in Istanbul and could face torture. "My father is arrested because of my outspoken criticism of the ruling party," Kanter wrote on his website.
