Enes Kanter has headed back to Portland.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Boston Celtics are trading center Enes Kanter to the Portland Trail Blazers in a three-team deal with the Memphis Grizzlies.
Memphis will receive Mario Hezonja and the 30th pick (Desmond Bane) while the Celtics will get a future Memphis draft consideration.
Kanter famously won the WWE 24/7 Title in September 2019, turning heel in Madison Square Garden by revealing his Celtics jersey. He immediately lost the title back to R-Truth. Kanter has been linked to WWE for over a year, claiming in May that he's had offers from WWE and that he will become a wrestler once his basketball career is over.
Kanter is a longtime wrestling fan who entered the Big Blue Madness 2010 game at Kentucky to The Undertaker's theme, even sporting a black hat.
Kanter averaged 8.1 points and 7.4 rebounds in 16.9 minutes while coming off the bench for the Celtics last season. He was part of the Blazers 2018-19 team that went to the Western Conference Finals.
