Don’t be surprised if Kemba Walker is wearing a new jersey in a different city next year. Walker is on the last year of his contract and slated to make 12 million this year. For a prolific scorer and the face of the Hornets franchise this could be a great thing.
While Walker professes that he loves Charlotte and wants to play out his career there. Is that what’s best for Kemba? It seems like every move the Charlotte front office makes ends in disaster. And none of those moves play to Walkers strengths.
Teams who are one or two pieces away from playoff contention would be ecstatic to land Walker. Who is on a very friendly team contract.
The major players could be Cleveland(if Lebron stays). Phoenix, who declined Elfrid Payton’s option. As well as Orlando, who has an amazing front court to work with and an underwhelming playmaker in Aaron Afflalo. My guess is Walker has his bags packed before the end of the summer.
Kemba Walker Informs Hornets He Will Sign with Celtics
According to the Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell, Walker has told the Hornets that he pans to signed with the Celtics once free agency kicks off.
According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Walker will ink a four-year, $141 million contract with Boston.
Hornets Decline Qualifying Offer for Frank Kaminsky
With the loss of Kemba Walker and now with Kaminsky heading out the door, it seems to be a sinking ship in Charlotte.
Kaminsky wasn’t a big part of head coach James Borrego’s rotation, losing minutes as the season wore on, but he is expected to draw significant interest one he hits free agency.
Kaminsky averaged 8.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists last season for the Hornets.
Kemba Walker Wants All Five Year Guaranteed with Hornets
If the Charlotte Hornets are looking to get a deal done with pending free agent point guard Kemba Walker, they will have to meet his demands.
The Hornets have the financial advantage over all other teams, as they are the only team that can offer Walker at five-year deal worth $221 million, but may have to add something else to their offer to get a deal done.
According to the Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell, Walker, 29, wants a full-guaranteed contract, including the fifth year in the deal.
