How the Knicks Could Land Kemba Walker

How the Knicks Could Land Kemba Walker

He's averaging 21.7 points and 5.8 assists per game and is shooting almost 35 percent from 3-point range. I recently covered Kemba Walker as a potential trade target for the Utah Jazz following a piece from The Washington Posts' Tim Bontemps in which he described how the soon-to-be financially struggling and under-achieving Hornets may have little chance for truly hitting the reset button without moving Kemba. This fact makes him even a better solution for the Cavs at the point guard position since they would have him for at least one more season after this one.

Given that the Hornets were expected to be better than this, and that they just got coach Steve Clifford back from an extended absence because of a personal health matter, it would be reasonable to think Charlotte (20-23), now one game behind the Knicks (20-25), is a team that could pass them in the standings and improve the Knicks' odds in the draft lottery.

Per ESPN, the Hornets are looking for a "good, young player or a first-round draft pick" in any trade involving Walker.

Charlotte has reportedly tried to unload the likes of Dwight Howard, Nicolas Batum, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, but other teams don't want to take on their lucrative contracts.

I don't know and I don't care. 4 games against teams with a losing record and 6 games against teams who would be in the playoffs if they started today. I'd be pretty upset, but like I said, I'm here right now. "I've never been in that situation".

Parents - monsters tortured their 13 children
They discovered that the couple really did have 12 children held captive in the residence, said the statement . The family had moved from Texas to California within the last several years, according to The New York Times .

Look, you can trade anybody else on this roster. Thus, he doesn't become a free agent until 2019.

The Charlotte Hornets really want to have a clear out and get rid of all their bad contracts and untradable assets, so they're doing their best to make themselves as appealing as possible to every team in the National Basketball Association.

It appears as though things could line up nicely for the Knicks to make a move.

Although none of these stories seem serious yet, the NBA's February 8th trade deadline is quickly approaching which means the rumors will continue to ramp up. That is the risk they take if Walker gets traded for the wrong package.
