Kemba Walker and the Detroit Pistons have agreed to a contract buyout after he was recently traded to the team.Â
Walker was dealt to the Pistons as part of a three-team trade for the #13 overall draft pick Jalen Duren from Charlotte, per multiple reports.
The 32-year-old is on an expiring $9.2 million salary for next season, but now he should clear waivers and hit free agency.
As part as a member of the Knicks last season, Walker found himself in and out of the lineup on multiple occasions under the decision of head coach Tom Thibodeau.
When on the floor, he was a bit of a defensive liability and struggled in the team offense averaging a career-low 11.6 points per game.
Walker will certainly receive multiple offers this offseason, and he’ll look to get back to his normal form after battling knee injuries the last couple of seasons.
