Would the Charlotte Hornets really trade Kemba Walker?

NBA trade rumors Hornets make Kemba Walker available prepare to hit reset button

The 27-year old point guard, coming off an All Star season in 2017, is averaging 21.7 points and 5.8 assists per game this season.

The NBA trade deadline is February 8th, and in the meantime the Hornets have ten games to try and win between now and then. There's rumors everywhere. I'll tell you the same thing I tell the players is, no one has said anything about it here, and it's a rumor. Perhaps the Hornets really are open to trading him as the ESPN report suggests, but it still may be unlikely that anything comes of it as Kyler said.

Eating Shumpert's contract ($10 million next season) isn't a big deal for Dallas, who are rebuilding around Dennis Smith Jr., Harrison Barnes and future draft picks, and might make the Cavs feel better about throwing a late first-round draft pick their way. Walker added that he values he got his opportunity in Charlotte and that he does a lot of work in the community.

Walker is the sixth-highest-paid Hornet this season - behind Dwight Howard, Nic Batum, Marvin Williams, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller. Bagley reports that Charlotte wants to have Walker-centric talks with the New York Knicks, even if the Knicks would be hesitant to do what would be necessary to acquire the New York native. A lot of the fans have a lot of love for me, as well as I've got love for them. And that's turning the New York Knicks off a little bit. Charlotte is ready to rebuild and is willing to include Walker in a trade, in which it would receive a first-round draft pick or a good young player in return.

Is there a team that will take any of these contracts RIGHT NOW to get Kemba? Cousins will be a free agent this summer, though New Orleans has plans of signing him to a long-term contract.

While everyone is focused on the National Basketball Association trade speculation surrounding big names like Anthony Davis and DeAndre Jordan - plus, on a smaller scale, Utah's Derrick Favors - perhaps that'll allow a different All-Star to fly under the radar at the trade deadline.
