Would-be Kentucky player Enes Kanter will play for the Big Blue All-Stars in a charity game against “villains” of the program, organizer Jeff Sheppard said.
Of course, Kanter did not get to play for UK because he was ruled permanently ineligible by the NCAA.
Sheppard said he originally hoped Kanter would play for a team that will tour Kentucky in the next few days.
That was a no-go.
But Sheppard seemed happy to announce that Kanter had committed to play in the Oct. 24 charity game in Rupp Arena.
