Kemba Walker shouldn’t attend Pistons ‘training camp’

Technically, Kemba Walker is in the Pistons squad. But the former Charlotte All-Star was never in the plans of Detroit, who picked him up to get their hands on Jalen Duren and a draft pick (in the first round, protected 1-4 in 2025) so that the Knicks were getting rid of his contract to free up salary margin.

It’s been months that everyone has been waiting for the Michigan franchise to release the leader of his last year of contract at 9.2 million dollars via a “buyout”, but it has not been done yet…

At 32, Kemba Walker was however ready to give up on 2.9 million dollars of his current contract to leave Detroit, an amount which he would have recovered by signing at least veteran (for at least ten years of activity in the NBA) at his new club. The problem is that he obviously can’t find a new club.

While it was once announced a possible return to Charlotte, it never materialized, even though the Hornets were looking for a back-up in LaMelo Ball, and they finally signed Dennis Smith Jr. a few years ago. days.

The future is therefore unclear for Kemba Walker, whose recurring knee problems raise questions. Like Jae Crowder, even if the circumstances are very different, The Athletic announces in any case that he should not take the “training camp” in Detroit, while waiting to find a new base.

With 16 guaranteed contracts, the Pistons need to release someone by October 17.
