Enes Kanter says he will be forever thankful for his time with the Thunder.

"When I lost my family and when I lost my home, you guys gave me that, so that's why the organization and Oklahoma as a state will be always in my heart," said Enes Kanter.

We expect to hear more from Anthony and other members of the team later Monday during OKC Thunder's media day.
