Kemba Walker was asked about possibly joining the New York Knicks as a free agent in 2019.
“I don’t have any interest in coming back home — right now,” said Walker.
Walker has always been linked to the Knicks due to their need at point guard and his ties to the area.
“I mean, I’m home. This is where I’m from,” Walker said when asked why he likes playing at the Garden so much. “I’m pretty sure anyone that goes home to play where they’re from, it’s exciting for them. [It’s exciting] for me, when I get a chance to play in front of my family and friends, play in front of the people that know me best.”
Walker previously expounded upon the links to the Knicks over this past summer.
“I’ve been hearing it for years now, the Knicks,” Walker said then. “Every time I come home, it’s ‘When are you coming home to the Knicks?’ MSG is a special place, man. The Knicks are a special team. Of course, I’ve been a Knicks fan growing up, always rooted for the home team. But I really can’t see myself in a Knicks jersey — only because I’ve been in one jersey. I really don’t know.”
