Makes no sense, and it especially makes no sense for them to lie about Kanter.
It lessens the chances of future stud European players trying to leave their 'parent clubs' and come to college in the states unless they totally sever such relationships and never play for European club teams in the first place (which is pretty much impossible because there is no other way for European players to develop their game IN EUROPE without moving to America).
