Kemba Walker Prepares For Potential Free Agency With Hornets Season Over

CHARLOTTE, N.C — Kemba Walker is close to embarking on unchartered territory, NBA free agency.

The Charlotte Hornets season ended on Wednesday without making a trip to the playoffs for the third straight season. Walker will become a free agent on July 1 if he cannot reach a deal with Hornets before then.

During player exit interviews on Thursday the three-time All-Star stood by his earlier comments of Charlotte being where he wants to be, but he remains unsure of how he’ll handle free agency.
