In the third quarter of the Mavericks and Knicks game on Wednesday night, fans started a “we want Kanter” chant. A short time later Enes Kanter was put into the game, ending his streak of DNPs at four.
The former starting center kissed the Knicks logo immediately after checking into the game. Kanter played a total of nine minutes and scored five points.

After sitting and watching for four straight games, Kanter was a little rusty and airballed his first shot attempt.

Does this mean Kanter is officially back? Or did the Knicks want to give their fans another look at him in a Knicks uniform before they trade him?
We’ll have to sit back with our popcorn and watch it play out.
