Kemba Walker hopes to remain with Hornets ‘for a long time’
Kemba Walker isn’t itching for a homecoming in New York. In fact, he wants to stick around Charlotte for a while.
With the Hornets point guard entering the final year of his contract, there is doubt about Walker’s long-term future in Charlotte. It’s particularly true as he’s a New York native, and some have whispered about a homecoming with the Knicks.
Don’t count on it, says Walker.
“As far as seeing me in New York, I doubt it,” Walker said, via Michael Scotto of The Athletic. “I’m a Hornet, and I’m planning on being a Hornet for a long time, so, yeah, I’m not sure about that.
“I’m not planning to leave, no. It’s not up to me right now.”
Walker has made it quite clear that he’s happy in Charlotte and absolutely does not want to leave. Of course, he may not have a choice if the Hornets decide to get some assets for him, but right now, he’s content to remain a Hornet.
