Free agent center Enes Freedom told EuroHoops that he did not receive a single offer in NBA free agency this summer.

Freedom, who was previously Enes Kanter, was traded to the Houston Rockets from the Boston Celtics back in February before being waived by the team.

The 30-year-old who’s averaged 11.2 points and 7.8 rebounds throughout his career could be serviceable for a number of teams.

Freedom spoke in his interview about other options outside the NBA:

“I am 30 years old. I can play another five or six years. I don’t intend to retire. I can’t go back to Turkey, that would be a one-way ticket.”

“Keep in mind that I can’t enter Turkey and that Turkish Airlines is the name sponsor of EuroLeague.”

We’ll see where Freedom ends up prior to the season startup, and he could end up playing in an international league if no NBA teams continue to not reach out.
