He's averaging 21.7 points and 5.8 rebounds and shooting about 35 percent from three.
Kemba Walker does not want to be traded.
Charlotte will be hoping that trading away the point guard would see a good, young player or a first-round draft pick come back their way, but at the same time, it would mean the franchise is officially entering a rebuild. But unless they're willing to part with Brooklyn's first-rounder - an unnecessary risk given LeBron James' future in Cleveland remains uncertain - they just don't have much in the way of assets to trade. The player the Hornets picked would nearly surely will be a player who isn't as good as Walker, a 2017 all-star and a survivor of the mostly very bad "Bobcat years" who also plays one of the most important positions in basketball as a point guard.
The Hornets point guard added that he won't let it be a distraction as they prepare for Saturday night's game against Miami, but admitted a trade would have a pretty big effect on him.
The Hornets are trying to shed the contracts of the likes of Nicolas Batum (four years, $100 million), Dwight Howard (two years, $47 million), Marvin Williams (three years, $42 million) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (three years, $39 million).
"I've never been in that situation", said Kemba Walker.
What do the Aziz Ansari allegations mean to you?
On his Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo, Ansari wore the Time's Up pin in solidarity with victims of sexual assault and harassment. Men like Ansari are aggressive because confidence and assuming attraction on the part of women frequently "works".
While I am sure that any Laker fan would be overjoyed to acquire Walker, it still would leave a lot unanswered for the Lakers.
Is there a team that will take any of these contracts RIGHT NOW to get Kemba? Those would be hard for any team to take on, even if they were getting Kemba in the exchange. This is kind of where I've grown up.
The NBA trade season is here, and the #WojBombs have started. Thus, he doesn't become a free agent until 2019.
Even with Walker, the Knicks aren't ready to contend right now, Taking on an overpaid role player would not only do little to help them on the court, but also hinder their flexibility in terms of making other moves.
Look, you can trade anybody else on this roster. The Knicks also have available draft picks. I doubt the Philadelphia 76ers pull the trigger, but there's reason to believe they should.
