Hornets Open to Trading Kemba Walker


Anyways, trading Kemba Walker makes a lot of sense right now for this Hornets team.

Kemba Walker #15 of the Charlotte Hornets handles the ball against the Oklahoma City Thunder on January 13, 2018 at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Hornets had already made available Nicolas Batum (four years, $100 million), Dwight Howard (two years, $47 million), Marvin Williams (three years, $42 million) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (three years, $39 million), league sources said, but those players and their contracts are largely unattractive in the marketplace. 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.

There has been no comment from the US military, but the use of helicopters in the raid indicates USA involvement. The Somali government said no children were killed in the rescue.

With the February 8 trade deadline approaching, Kemba Walker has quickly emerged as the biggest name on the market.

Sound the alarms Detroit Pistons fans, there is a star point guard available on the market! "I don't have any comment on that", Clifford said.

The Knicks have 19-year-old Frank Ntilikina. I'd be pretty upset, but like I said, I'm here right now. The news signals a bitter reality for the Hornets, one they finally decided they couldn't ignore: they stink.

Health officials stress importance of flu shot
Antiviral medication may reduce symptoms and shorten the duration of the flu if taken within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. But staying home when you're sick "could make a difference in the spread of the influenza virus", Ehrman said.

For Utah, who are five games out of a playoff spot and rebuilding on the fly around stud rookie Donnovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, Parker is a calculated risk - a huge boon if he can be a contributing secondary scorer, and fairly low-risk to find out if all you're giving up is a future first and Johnson's $10-million expiring contract.

If Charlotte was to pair Kemba Walker with a large contract in a trade, they would likely need a facilitating team like the Mavs to help complete the move as they are one of only seven teams under the salary cap this season. The 2nd leading scorer all time in Hornets history and is very close to becoming #1 in points. Look, as I mentioned in my previous piece on Kemba Walker, I would absolutely LOVE to have him in a Jazz uniform. He's been the heart and soul of this franchise since he got here back in 2011.
