Kemba Walker News
New York Knicks guard Kemba Walker (knee) had his introductory press conference at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday. Regarding his health, the four-time All-Star reported that his left knee "felt great" while also commenting that he intends to "come in feeling super good and continue to feel super good." The veteran signed a two-year, $18 million contract a few weeks ago after receiving a buyout by the Oklahoma City Thunder during the offseason. Throughout his 10 seasons in the league, the 31-year-old is averaging 19.9 points, 5.4 assists, and 1.3 steals and has historically been an effective fantasy option whenever he is on the floor. However, his health has been an issue, so managers should be mindful of that during upcoming drafts for the 2021-22 campaign.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kemba Walker has reached a buyout agreement with the organization. Walker is expected to sign with the New York Knicks once he clears waivers. Walker has struggled to find a home since leaving Charlotte. He averaged 19.3 points, 4.9 assists, and 4.0 rebounds with 1.1 steals per game last season. The talent is still there, but Walker's knee continues to bother him. It has slowed him down the last few seasons and the issue is unlikely to go away. Walker will remain a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option, assuming he signs with New York. The knee issue is probably going to sideline him at some point, but he'll be a huge asset to the Knicks if he can stay on the court.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kemba Walker could find himself in Los Angeles for the 2021-22 campaign, possibly suiting up for the Lakers or Clippers. The veteran was recently traded to OKC from Boston in exchange for Al Horford, although Walker may never see the floor for his current team. With both L.A. organizations in need of a point man, Walker has a chance to shine while playing alongside LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and Kawhi Leonard, assuming he remains with the Clippers. The 31-year-old has a career average of 19.9 points, 5.4 assists, and 1.3 steals throughout 10 seasons of service but has battled constant knee issues over the years. However, if he can remain healthy, the upside is always there regardless of what uniform he is wearing.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kemba Walker may find himself with a new club before the start of the 2021-22 NBA campaign. The veteran, who was dealt to OKC on Friday in exchange for Al Horford, will undoubtedly be looking to join a contender as he enters the twilight of his career. Walker averaged 19.3 points per game this season, a gradual decrease over the years, and has also battled a consistent left knee issue. The 31-year-old may have some gas left in the tank, and depending on where he lands next, his numbers may rise. However, his inability to remain healthy will surely raise some red flags, so fantasy managers shouldn't reach too far to pick him up in drafts heading into the new year.
