OKC's Kanter Returns Safely To America

Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter is back in the U.S. after being detained in Romania early Saturday.

Kanter was denied entry into the country because Romanian border police said his passport had been cancelled by the Turkish government. He wasn't arrested but was not allowed to leave the airport until he departed for London four hours later.

In a video on Twitter, Kanter says his home country cancelled his passport because of his political views. The six-foot-eleven big man is a critic of Turkish President Erdogan.

Kanter is set to hold a news conference in New York Monday to give more details.
