Thunder's Kanter wants to be U.S. citizen, getting death threats

(TSX / STATS) -- Oklahoma City Thunder center Enes Kanter, who was detained in Romania over the weekend after his passport was revoked apparently stemming from his political views regarding his native Turkey, said he wants to become an American citizen and revealed he is receiving death threats.

The United States "is my home now," Kanter said Monday. He plans to take steps toward becoming a U.S. citizen.

"Right now I am country-less," Kanter said at a news conference at the National Basketball Players Association headquarters in New York. "I am open to adoption definitely. I am going to try to become an American citizen. I have a green card. We will see if they can speed up the process a little bit. It would definitely be nice. Right now my next move is becoming an American citizen."
