The 2019 NBA free agent class is highlighted by names like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Kawhi Leonard. However slightly below them sits Kemba Walker who too has the flexibility to vary the trajectory of a franchise. Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer is reporting a group not usually introduced up as a suitor is predicted to be on the prime of the record of threats to the Hornets’ efforts of protecting Walker. That group, the Dallas Mavericks.
“Threats to signal Kemba Walker away from the Charlotte Hornets this summer season? Place this group on the prime of your record:
The Dallas Mavericks.
Two sources with data of the Mavericks’ pondering anticipate Walker, the Hornets’ three-time All-Star level guard, to be that group’s prime goal when NBA free-agency begins July 1.”
After years of lacking out on prime free brokers, the Dallas Mavericks have grow to be considerably of an afterthought by way of enticing locations. Now, with superstar-in-the-making Luka Doncic, the Mavericks are going to should be handled going ahead each in free company and as a group to compete with on the court docket. Subsequent to Kristaps Porzingis, Dallas will quickly be a protracted nightmare to defend. Which seemingly makes this an interesting choice for Walker.
Walker is an elite scorer within the league and his 25 plus factors per sport common this season is precisely what Dallas’ 22nd ranked offense in that class might want to take the following step.
There doesn’t seem like a greater basketball choice than Dallas in the intervening time for Walker. The Lakers are a multitude and appear to be the worst choice for any free agent. He would match with each the Knicks and Clippers, however clearly each groups have greater plans. As for the Hornets, effectively, they’re going nowhere quick.
Certainly, this won’t be the final Kemba Walker rumor, however like a few of these NBA free agent rumblings, this one makes a lot sense.
