Speaking with on ESPN's E:60 show Sunday, Türkoğlu said he had nothing to say to Kanter, who recently joined Portland Trail Blazers from New York Knicks.

"I don't send messages to supporters of terrorist organizations," Türkoğlu said. He added that Kanter used his NBA stardom to spread propaganda for a terrorist leader.
