Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker has been at the root of trade rumors this offseason, being linked to teams such as the New York Knicks, but the veteran franchise building block doesn’t want to go anywhere.

Walker spoke about the rumors, specifically those that link him to the Knicks.

“As far as seeing me in New York, I doubt it,” Walker said, according to Michael Scotto of The Athletic. “I’m a Hornet, and I’m planning on being a Hornet for a long time; so, yeah, I’m not sure about that [New York].”

Walker, a Bronx native, has one year remaining in his contract worth $12 million.

“I’m not planning to leave, no,” Walker said. “It’s not up to me right now.”

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.
