Kemba Wallker has only been with one team since he was drafted in 2011 and for those seven seasons, nothing much has changed in Charlotte. Walker and the Hornets have been to the playoffs twice since he’s been there (2014, 2016) and tried adding big boy Dwight Howard last season but that didn’t work.
The NY Native returned home for the Players Association’s kids camp at Pier 36 and the NY Post asked what the future holds in Charlotte and if there’s a possibility of him coming back home to New York.
“I’ve been hearing for years now – the Knicks. Every time I come home, it’s ‘When are you coming home to the Knicks?’ MSG is a special place, man. The Knicks are a special team. Of course, I’ve been a Knicks fan growing up, always rooted for the home team. But I really can’t see myself in a Knicks jersey — only because I’ve been in one jersey. I really don’t know.”
When it comes to the Hornets, he’s unsure on his future with them. “I’ve never been a free agent. I don’t know how the process works. I will have options unless Charlotte gets something done.”
Per Spotrac, Walker signed a four year deal for $48 million. He is a free agent in 2019.
