Trade Kemba Walker? Don't be ridiculous, Charlotte Hornets

Charlotte Hornets

The point guard made last year's All-Star team when he averaged a career-high 23.2 points per game, and he's put up averages of 21.7 points, 5.8 assists and 3.4 rebounds in the 2017-2018 season.

Walker, 27, would likely be traded as part of a bigger deal if the Hornets ultimately chose to send him elsewhere.

This could turn out to be some team's lucky day as the Hornets have finally decided that they would be willing to part with their best player to try to begin to sort out the financial disaster they have gotten themselves into.

Kemba is second on the Hornets all-time scoring list and he leads the team this season in points, minutes and assists per game.

The spat comes days before Trump says he will announce what he calls the "Fake News Awards" to highlight stories unfair to him. Asked if he had spoken with Mr Kim, the President said cryptically: "I don't want to comment on it".

An ESPN report said that the Hornets are fielding trade inquiries on their star point guard.

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. On a side note, #WojBombs and #ShamWows (Shams Charania) alerts get me so excited, but that is neither here or there. 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. Those would be hard for any team to take on, even if they were getting Kemba in the exchange. I'd be pretty upset, but like I said, I'm here right now. This is kind of where I've grown up.

So before any Jazz fans get too giddy about the possibility of the team seeking after Kemba Walker now that reports have indicated that he is indeed on the trade block, they'd probably be wise to pump the breaks.

Carrying a awful contract themselves in Joakim Noah's, adding more big salaries to their payroll is the last thing the Knicks want to do. But that doesn't mean he is going to get traded folks. If the Knicks wanted to get involved, Charlotte would likely want rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina and/or a first-round pick in return, but offering to shed some of their financial burden would likely lessen the asking price.
