Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks, and Charlotte Hornets have been involved in a three team deal that sees veteran guard Kemba Walker go to Pistons and also get the draft rights to Jalen Duren.
New York in exchange gets a 2025 conditional Milwaukee Bucks first-round pick. The 32-year-old’s contract is expiring with a $9.2 million salary as we go into the next season. Walker was sidelined by New York Knicks on a mutual decision in February. The four-time All-Star wanted to prepare for the 2022-23 season after he faced knee soreness the entire January. Taking part in 37 games for the side, Walker averaged 11.6 points and three rebounds. Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau had already forced Walker out of the main rotation of Knicks in mid-November.
