On Wednesday, in an effort to add playoff tested depth, the Portland Trail Blazers added free-agent Enes Kanter to their roster.

According to sources, the Blazers were Kanter’s choice over several other suitors, including the Lakers. Kanter made the news official in a post on Twitter:

The Knicks waived Kanter after they were unable to trade him by the February 7th deadline.

“We’re getting a guy who can really score and rebound,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. “And he’ll help us be a better team.”

“He’s a bona fide player in this league. You look at his body of work. He’s a great rebounder, a great offensive rebounder. He can score and get rebounds in a short amount of time. And I think the role that we have for him will really be good for him, but it will really be good for us, as far as providing a different dimension off our bench.”

Kanter will join the Blazers in Brooklyn after the All-Star break.
