Walker, a 2017 EasternConferenceAll-Star selection, is averaging 21.7 points on 42 percent shooting and 5.8 assists per game. Is the relationship reparable, or will the Hornets have no choice but to pull the trigger on a trade?
Kemba Walker said he'd be "pretty upset" if he was traded from the Hornets.
If the Sixers strike out with star-level players in free agency this offseason, though, it could be worth at least exploring what the price might be with the Hornets at that point in time.
The team has made Dwight Howard, Nicolas Batum, Marvin Williams and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist available ahead of the league's February 8 trade deadline, but their contracts have dampened their trade value significantly. Don't get me wrong, I like Kemba. I love Hassan Whiteside and Justise Winslow, but if trading them both and smaller contracts to attain Kemba and a bad contract such as Dwight Howard or Nic Batum, I think it would be something the Heat have to consider, even if attaching a future pick. 4 games against teams with a losing record and 6 games against teams who would be in the playoffs if they started today. Everyone will want Walker, but no one is going to be eager to take on one of those contracts to get him. This is kind of where I've grown up.
The Utah Jazz may very well look to swing for the fences and pull of a monumental move leading up to this year's trade deadline, but it would be nothing short of shocking if that home run play involved bringing Kemba Walker into the fold.
Q: I know it's a small sample size, but Justise Winslow's 3-point percentage quietly has become among the most accurate among the rotation players.
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.
While the top-end of the 2018 draft is as loaded as any, there is a fairly steep drop off after the first seven or so picks, and the Knicks - particularly with Walker running the point - are unlikely to be picking in the top 10.
If the Hornets trade Walker, then they are essentially punting on this season.
They now sit just two points behind Southampton, who are currently enduring their own winless run in 16th. Seamus Coleman is back in training but this one comes too soon for the Republic of Ireland skipper.
