Sound the alarms Detroit Pistons fans, Kemba Walker is available

Report: Hornets Open to Trading Kemba Walker

NBA trade rumors: Hornets willing to move Kemba Walker in potential blockbuster deal

"A person with firsthand knowledge of the situation indicated the Pistons are indeed interested in Walker, who reportedly has been made available by the Hornets".

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Charlotte has warmed to the idea of parting with franchise guard Kemba Walker in hopes of offloading undesirable salaries and acquiring young/future talent.

Apart from Walker, though, Charlotte's trade prospects have been hamstrung by unattractive contracts. Walker is the Hornets' best and most popular player on the court today. The fact that Kemba Walker is officially on the block should tell you that the Hornets want a do over at that position - and quite possibly overall - and giving them the keys to that will also allow Los Angeles to get what they desperately need. Cousins will be a free agent this summer, though New Orleans has plans of signing him to a long-term contract.

The Charlotte Hornets, with some injuries and head coach Steve Clifford missing a month due to a health issue playing a role, are 18-25 and in 11th place (four games out of a playoff spot) in the Eastern Conference. "Another NBA source added that the Hornets will be asking teams to take back one of their larger contracts, like Nicolas Batum, Marvin Williams or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, making a Knicks' match even more unlikely", Berman wrote. Which team should go after him?

The Pistons' trade package [VIDEO] for Walker could presumably include Reggie Jackson (three-year, $51 million), former lottery draft pick Stanley Johnson and a future first round pick. We'll see if any other potential suitors come forward before the trade deadline.

Given the Pistons' bloated payroll, a third team would likely have to be involved in any trade bringing Walker to Detroit.
