PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Oklahoma City center Enes Kanter has signed a four-year, $70 million max offer sheet from the Portland Trail Blazers.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Trail Blazers did not announce the terms of the offer.

The Thunder now have three days to decide if they will match the offer and retain Kanter, or let him go to Portland.

Kanter averaged 18.7 points and 11.0 rebounds per game after the Thunder acquired him from Utah last season. He will be entering his fifth year in the league.

The Blazers have the cap space to make the massive offer after losing All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge to the San Antonio Spurs.

Yahoo Sports first reported the offer.
