Kanter hasn't been shy about his love for professional wrestling, recently joking on Twitter that WWE was his "next chapter" and posing for pictures with superstars like Brock Lesnar and John Cena during an event at Madison Square Garden in March:

My next chapter 💯 💪 @WWE https://t.co/aXopaVt2kg

WWE owner Vince McMahon has a long history of getting behind big men, including Andre the Giant and The Great Khali.

Kanter's 6'11" frame could make him next in line whenever he decides to trade in his basketball shoes for wrestling boots.
