According to Shams Charania, the Charlotte Hornets are looking at a potential reunion with veteran point guard Kemba Walker.

Walker was traded from the New York Knicks to the Detroit Pistons this offseason in order for the Knicks to make room for Jalen Brunson.

The 32-year-old then agreed to a buyout with the Pistons, making him a free agent for next season.

Walker had an up and down year with New York last season, after he played well for the team, got removed from the rotation by head coach Tom Thibodeau, played well again, then agreed to sit the remainder of the season after playing 37 games.

He averaged 11.6 points on 40.3% shooting, three rebounds, and 3.5 assists in 2021-22.

The report also noted that Charlotte also has interest in Isaiah Thomas, who appeared in 17 games for the team last season and was apparently a strong locker room presence.

With the news of potential franchise player Miles Bridges facing possible felony domestic violence and child abuse, the Hornets are scrambling this offseason.
