Enes Kanter hasn’t yet made a decision on his $18.6 million player option. Opposing teams expect him to opt in. But if Kanter opts out, multiple teams – including Milwaukee – have expressed interest internally in discussing a potential contract with the 26-year-old center.

Milwaukee has a big decision to make with Jabari Parker, but either way, they likely won’t have more than the mid-level exception of about $8.6MM to offer Kanter. Of course, if he can get a long-term deal, he might be willing to do that to make up for the $18.6MM “lost” next season if he opts-out.
