Kemba Walker 'doesn't think about' free agency | The Jump

  • Published on Jan 8, 2019
  • Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker joins Rachel Nichols, Chiney Ogwumike and Richard Jefferson on The Jump to talk about whether he thinks he will be an NBA All-Star this season and the career year he's having. He also discusses the possibility of receiving a supermax contract from the Hornets and whether that will make an impact on his free agency decision. Walker also discusses the big name NBA players that will be entering free agency this summer and where he expects to be in the free agency pool if he enters.

    That's a lie and just a PC comment for the media. There's no way Kemba has not thought about his future as an upcoming free agent. He just doesn't want 2 tip his hand right now since free agency isn't until July 1.

    Dictionary definition of underrated in human form the man came into a disaster of a franchise and has somehow managed to get better every single year with the team being in constant turmoil the one constant has always been Kemba glad to see him finally getting the shine he deserves....

    Only a 2-time all-star? Man. This league nowadays. He's the only thing keeping the Hornets relevant. He should be at least a 5-time all-star surrounded by excellent players. What team should he go to or should he stay in Charlotte?

  • Nicolas Espinosa
    Nicolas Espinosa 4 months ago

    Hornets need to keep him. Bring another player he wants to play with. The East sucks so adding a player would make them a top 3-5 team in the east. They’re never going to draw bigger free agents than Kemba and you don’t make playoff runs with a rookie unless his name is LeBron James.

    se7en Zee 4 months ago

    The Hornets should just trade Kemba for 2 young players or draft picks rather than paying him. 1) he's going to be 29 this year. 2) the team can't win with him being the best player on the team.

    If the Cavs were somehow able to trade for Kemba and another Hornet, Bron wouldnt have gotten swept, might have gone to Game 6 or 7 who knows. This guy is definitely the most underrated PG is the NBA today.
    MJ is still the GOAT though.
