Report: Kemba Walker ‘legitimately hurt’ he could be traded, found out via media
Kemba Walker is not taking his surprising inclusion in trade talks all that well, and it is definitely hard to blame him.
Jordan Schultz of Yahoo! Sports reported Saturday that the Charlotte Hornets All-Star point guard is “legitimately hurt” that he could be traded by the team before the Feb. 8 deadline and found out the news through media coverage.
Kemba Walker is legitimately hurt right now. He had NO idea he might be traded. I’m told he found out through media coverage. #Hornets

The 27-year-old Walker, who is averaging 21.7 points and 5.8 assists per game this season, appeared to be the one untouchable on the Hornets roster. But the team is just 18-25 on the year and has never made it past the first round of the playoffs since Walker arrived as a rookie back in 2011. The rumors about where he may end up next likely won’t make Kemba feel much better either.
