Walker, who has been the subject of trade rumors earlier in the year, spoke candidly about his disappointment with another lost season.
“I’ve been there twice in seven years, and it’s just not fun (missing out).”
Walker’s deal is set to expire after next season, so, the Hornets have some work to do if they want to keep Walker in the fold, including building a winning team around him.
Walker, at this time, would like to stay in Charlotte.
“Hopefully, I’ll be here for a long time,” Walker stated. “I’ve always felt like I’m a winning player. Like I deserved it to be in the playoffs – to be battling. That’s what it will be all about in the future.”
“Whenever we get a new GM, we’ll see what direction he wants to go,” Walker said, “and I’ll make the best decision for me.”
Hornets Sign Jalen McDaniels
The McDaniel signings comes off the heels of the team releasing Thomas Welsh, which created the necessary roster spot of the addition of McDaniels.
McDaniels averaged 15.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists last season for San Diego State.
Hornets Release Thomas Welsh
The Charlotte Hornets have released veteran big man Thomas Welsh, according to the Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell.
Welsh spent his rookie season on a two-way contract with the Denver Nuggets, but was waived in July.
The Hornets picked him up shortly thereafter, but he now becomes an unrestricted free agent if he successfully clears waivers.
Hornets’ PJ Washington Medically Cleared
Charlotte Hornets rookie PJ Washington has been medically cleared to do pretty much everything on the court, good news for the 21-year old and the Hornets.
“I’m pretty much cleared to do everything,” Washington said, according to Rck Bonnell of the Charlotte News Observer . “After summer league, it was about two weeks.”
“Pretty much everything: Finishing, shooting, pick-and-roll, pick-and-pop,” Washington reiterated. “All the reads.”
Washington had been recovering from ongoing pain in his left foot, which prevented him from participating in the 2019 Summer League.
Now, it’s all systems go for Washington.
