Enes Kanter will be a Trail Blazer as the former Knicks center will get a chance to play with a contender.

Kanter made the news official in a post on Twitter, saying he looks forward "to helping the Blazers achieve the ultimate goal of competing for a championship". The Knicks tried to find a trade partner for Kanter by the February 7 deadline, but no luck.

The Blazers are 33-23 on the season, good for fourth place in the Western Conference standings.

The Blazers signed Kanter as a restricted free agent to a four-year, $70 million offer sheet in 2015.

Kanter has appeared in 560 career games with the Utah Jazz, Oklahoma City Thunder and Knicks. After playing two seasons with the Thunder, Kanter was traded along with Doug McDermott to NY in exchange for Carmelo Anthony.

The third overall pick by the Utah Jazz in the 2011 Draft, the 6-11 center has averaged 11.9 points on 55 percent shooting from the field and 7.6 points in 560 games over the course of his seven-plus National Basketball Association season.

In 44 games this season he is averaging 14 points and 10.5 rebounds per game, but he fell out of the rotation as Knicks head coach David Fizdale shifted his focus to younger bigs like Luke Kornet and Mitchell Robinson.
