Hornets' Kemba Walker says he would be 'pretty upset' if he's traded

"He has turned me into a whole different player and person". There's rumors everywhere. I'll tell you the same thing I tell the players is, no one has said anything about it here, and it's a rumor.

"This is where I got my opportunity".

He added that he thinks he would have input in a decision like that. But putting the cap aside, if the Hornets were to deal with the Heat, I would think the preference would be Bam Adebayo over Whiteside, due to simple economics. Even though he's not having the best season shooting-wise, there's definitely a role for Walker on any team that is in need of a lead guard, or simply a guard that can get a bucket when needed. "He's our best player, he's the face of the franchise, and I think it would be very hard to find a scenario where he'd get traded".

Walker spoke to the media after practice as well, and admitted he'd seen the report prior to coming in Friday. I'm still here, I've been here the last seven year. Walker was named an All-Star previous year for the first time in his career and figures to be a huge addition to a team that needs a solidified starter at the point guard position. I'd be pretty upset. I'm here right now. I do a lot with community, of course. "But I mean, I don't know".

The Hornets will probably not trade their franchise player unless they get a king's ransom back, but these kind of leaks can have a way of damaging team chemistry. Of course I'm going to be tied to this place.

While Brogdon, the reigning rookie of the year, is a solid asset, the addition of Eric Bledsoe at the point earlier this season has moved him to the bench, where he's become the Bucks' de facto sixth man.


Walker, 27, would likely be traded as part of a bigger deal if the Hornets ultimately made a decision to send him elsewhere.

For the Hornets, however, a young promising piece like Ntilikina would be a nice asset in their rebuild, while the 23-year-old Hernangomez has impressed in moments but, for reasons that are unclear, has been nearly entirely out of the Knicks rotation this season.

- What are the game plans of several teams entering the trade deadline, including the Atlanta Hawks and Oklahoma City Thunder?

"He is everything", Batum said.

"He's the captain. The best player. He's our leader. We go as he goes".

While everyone is focused on the National Basketball Association trade speculation surrounding big names like Anthony Davis and DeAndre Jordan - plus, on a smaller scale, Utah's Derrick Favors - perhaps that'll allow a different All-Star to fly under the radar at the trade deadline.
