Eligible for Supermax, Kemba Walker Claims Charlotte is First Priority

The Charlotte Hornets are about to enter a lose-lose situation.

On one hand, the best player in their franchise’s history is eligible to leave them in free agency this summer. Or on the flip-side, the soon-to-be 30-year old point guard is eligible to sign on with the team for the five-year super-max, further strapping a team financially that already is loaded with horrible, dead-weight contracts.

“Charlotte’s definitely my first priority. That’s where I’ve been for eight years and that’s all I know. Not many people get a chance to play for one NBA team throughout their career,” Kemba Walker told Jared Weiss of The Athletic. “Charlotte is my home, man. I’ve been there for eight years and it’s been the most amazing eight years of my life…The organization has been great and gave me my opportunity.”

After making the All-NBA third team this season, Walker becomes qualified to sign with the Hornets for $221.3-million over the next five years. The former UConn standout has never stopped emphasizing the love he has for the city of Charlotte and the Hornets organization.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks are two other teams that are rumoured to be interested in Walker.
