ANKARA, Turkey (AP) Turkish prosecutors are seeking an international arrest warrant for New York Knicks player Enes Kanter, accusing him of membership in a terror organization.

Sabah newspaper says the Istanbul chief prosecutor\'s office had also prepared an extradition request for the NBA player. Officials at the prosecutor\'s office could not be reached by The Associated Press for comment.

Kanter, who didn\'t go with the Knicks this week for their game in London because he feared he could be killed over his opposition to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, responded on Twitter that the Turkish government could not present "any single piece of evidence of my wrongdoing."
