According to reports, the Charlotte Hornets have made All-Star point guard, Kemba Walker, available via trade and are actually shopping him! Walker is averaging 21.7 ppg, 5.8 apg, 3.3 rpg, and 1.2 spg! Would it be a smart move by the Hornets to deal Walker in the hopes of a rebuild?
Who should the Lakers trade for Kemba? Keep in mind the Hornets are trying to open up cap space and we have a bunch of expiring deals that can please their needs! A potential trade might be Kemba/Marvin Williams/Lamb for Randle/Pope
The New York Knicks have not reached out to the Charlotte Hornets about Kemba Walker, league sources say.
The 2018 NBA All-star Game in Los Angeles is less than a month away and as of Thursday, we now know who the team captains and starters will be.
Announced before Thursday's game between the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76'ers on TNT, the starters for both conferences may be the most even they've been in a while.
For the West, the Team Captain was Golden State Warriors guard, Stephen Curry who was chosen alongside teammate Kevin Durant. Joining the two Warriors will be two Pelicans, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. Both of the New Orleans Pelicans' superstar frontcourt will be starting. Rounding out the five from the West will be the Houston Rockets' own James Harden who actually only got in due to the Media and Player vote as the fans selected Manu Ginobili of all players.
In the East, the Team Captain will be LeBron James representing the Cleveland Cavaliers. Joining him will be former teammate and current Boston Celtics superstar, Kyrie Irving. The other three include Giannis Antetokounmpo who will be representing the Milwaukee Bucks in his second All-star game, DeMar DeRozan will be repping "The North", and finally first time All-star Joel Embiid will represent the Philadelphia 76'ers with a starting role.
LeBron led all other players with votes and as a result, he will get the first pick in the "All-star draft". Who should LeBron pick with the first selection?

Honestly kemba to New York would be great. Definitely underrated point guard.
Jerrit jack has been good recently but he is old and ntilikina is our future. Who knows if ntilikina will even be ready to start next year. Right now kemba is better than ntilikina and who knows down the road. I'm willing to give up Willy, joakim (please!!🙏), and lance thomas.
Honestly they wouldn't settle for that and would want frank and draft picks. Odds are kemba will be just a little bit better than what he is right now. (21.7 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 5.8 apg)
With that being said, would you rather have kemba walker, who is already above average, or risk losing a potential MONSTER in frank ntilikina. Frank has incredible potential let's leave it at that.
Comment whether kemba or ntilikina will be a better fit for the Knicks.
“Scott and Steve, everybody’s still on the same page of trying to get our young guys opportunities,” Hornacek said following Friday’s shootaround. “We’re still trying to win games. We still want to establish an identity where defensively we’re going to get after it all the time and we’re building toward that. It’s great to have their support.”
“You hear them [the players] talking about, ‘Oh we can make the playoffs.’ We never said it,” Hornacek said. “We said we want to get better and we want to grow. Part of our talk was you can’t worry about the results. You just got to go out there and if you do your best and try to improve the results will come. When you start thinking about win or lose, all of a sudden your mentality becomes different. We got to get back to that.”
“You always want to win. We know it’s a process that we kind of got to grow to. Players want to win every game. Coaches want to win every game. Management wants to win every game. But you also have to keep that big picture in mind and always think about, ‘Are we making strides or are we just trying to win games and the strides stop?’ We always have to keep that in mind.”
Nonostante le ottime prestazioni di Kemba Walker e Dwight Howard,i Charlotte Hornets sono ancora lontani dai playoffs:undicesimi in classifica con 18-25 e a 4 gare distanti da 76ers.Secondo Adrian Wojnarowski,gli Hornets starebbero pensando di cambiare qualcosa e cedere addirittura anche Kemba Walker.Il playmaker, All Star un anno fa, guadagnerà 12 milioni di dollari in questa e nella prossima stagione, col contratto che scadrà solo nel 2019.Walker comunque non è stato l’unico degli Hornets a finire sul mercato, la franchigia ha reso disponibile praticamente mezza squadra, con Howard, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marvin Williams e Nicolas Batum possibili partenti.

are looking to trade @_kw15
,where is the best location for him???👂😮🏀
The Hornets have made Kemba Walker available for trade... Unlikely that Lakers package a deal for him but would you want to see Kemba in the purple and gold? He is under contract through 2018-2019 earning $12 million/year.
Kristaps Porzingis was above Joel Embiid in all-star player voting. The Fans/Media said otherwise.
Who deserved the All Star Starter nod more - Porzingis or Embiid?
The Lakers announced they've signed Nigel Hayes to a 10-day contract. The forward averaged 14.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and shot 45.8% overall and 44% from 3 with the Westchester Knicks.
Meet your 2018 starters from the Eastern Conference!
Congrats to of the for moving up to 13th on the NBA's ALL-TIME STEALS list!
You pull up to get ☕️ & 🍩 and Terry Rozier is at the window... what do you do? 😂 (Via
Lauri Markkanen told Steph FOH! 🤚
Joel Embiid e stato scelto per l'All Star Game e qualcuno si ricorderà di come,quando non era ancora in NBA,ci provo con Rihanna che li rispose di ritornare da lei quando sarebbe riuscito a diventare un All Star.
Dopo il match contro i Boston Celtics,il camerunese ha spiazzato tutti con le sue dichiarazioni: "Lei mi ha rifiutato tempo addietro, perché ora dovrei uscirci? Devo passare oltre e andare su un nuovo obiettivo."
: According to Woj, Charlotte is making Kemba Walker available for a trade. Should the Knicks make a move and if so, at what price? 👇 --
