    This is what Kupchak said about Kemba. Kemba has also expressed wanting to stay in CHA. Odds of a trade are slim with him hitting FA, my guess he stays in CHA.


    You said when you arrived here that Kemba Walker would be a “focal point” of this team moving forward. Can you definitively say he’s off the trading block now, that he’s not going anywhere? Mitch Kupchak: He’s a free agent this year, so I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say with the league. But our intention is for him to end his career in a Hornet uniform. It sounds like you and he are in agreement, then. He said he doesn’t want to go anywhere and wants to re-sign here. Mitch Kupchak: Yeah, I’ve read the things he said. He’s beloved here. He’s our All-Star. So, why wouldn’t you want to have him end his career here? He’s been here from the beginning. He’s beloved in the community. It sounds like he wants to stay here. There’s nothing that can be done about that now. Next summer, we’ll do what we have to do.

    I think they've made the playoffs twice the past 5yrs, not that that's saying much but it's more than we have. Now what do you think of adding Kemba to #kporzee/Knox/Trier/THJR? we'd still be bottom feeders? Is this what the two of you are saying?

    So it's really Kawhi/Durant of bust huh? No Klay, No Butler, No Kyrie won't make us any better than Kemba if we're being honest in our hearts

    Which is why we'd almost have to trade for him....of course we have to hope they start losing games at an alarming rate. We're going to have to pry someone we want away from a team. Free Agency is going to prove difficult with a team going down the drain this yr.

    I think that I said in another post that I’d sign Kemba in free agency, but I’d be weary of paying any significant price for him in a trade. I don’t think we’re snagging any big names in free agency when all is said and done though. We’ve never been a hot free agency destination. The media just makes it sound like we are because it gets them views on stories.

    The Hornets are a borderline playoff team as it stands so at this point it's moot that we sign him in FA. Like you say we're going to be a hard sell for a FA like Kemba who may be dying to go to a winning team with a chance to contend for a championship.

    According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, Michael Jordan is "fully focused" and "hellbent" on re-signing Kemba Walker this summer.

    Charania adds that Jordan's stance likely won't change as long as the Hornets are competitive this season. Walker has made it very clear that he wants to remain in Charlotte, so this should be a no-brainer for a franchise with a poor track record in drafts and in free agency. Despite this report, it's inevitable that we will hear some trade rumors when the deadline gets closer with Walker on such a bargain of an expiring contract.

    Kupchak and now MJ saying they want to keep him. The only way they trade him is if he forces his way off the team ala JB Kawhi. We do need a PG so lets see if one of Trey Mudiay or Nits can emerge as a starting caliber PG before giving max money to a PG who like JB, whose timeline is out of sync with the Knicks.

    I said last yr we should have traded for him(nothing has changed) if we wanted to show everyone we were serious about winning when they made him available after their players went down with injuries early in the season but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooo we couldn't give up our precious little Knitty

    I said again this yr and he once again is the only realistic Free Agent target we can get

    Tony Parker! Tony Parker! Tony Parker!
    Dum-Dum Mills & Perry should have been the first to go after the HOF Frenchmen PG Tony Parker in the off-season to mentor the 19 yr old Frank Knitty.
    Before HOF player/coach/leader Tony Parker became a Hornet .. Kemba's 7 year performance average 35 minute per game, shooting 40% FGA (37% 3-ball), 3 rb, 5 Dimes, 1 stl, 2 turnovers, averaging a 34 win season, plus visited the playoff twice in 7 seasons.
    Im sure if we let Frank average 15 or more shots per game for 3 or more seasons Frank would be able to average more than 17 to 20 pts.
    The Knicks dont need Kemba .. the Knicks need to sign coach Chuancey Billups to work with Frank, Burke Mudiay, and Trier this season.

    So, our free agent dreams depend on KL or Durant?

    If we sign Durant... I would look to trade KP for draft picks or a PG. KP and Durant are redundant...

    I doubt Durant could handle media here so I don’t see him coming. KL’s uncle would have to pull off a miracle for him to come...

    It brings us back to the draft and shrewd free agent finds... or trade.

    So u dont believe HOF PG Tony Parker has anything to do with Kemba Walker's new and improve performance this season ..
    Shame on u!
    I recall HOF PG Jason Kidd lifting Iso-Melo, JRsmith, and Felton performance to give the Knicks a 54 win season, the following season without HOF PG Jason Kidd on the Knicks roster Iso-Melo, JRsmith, and Felton had a 37 win season.

    Kemba might be great for the next 2 or 3 years but we need more of a long term solution at point guard
