Kemba Walker has been training in Charlotte and New York while he remains away from the New York Knicks. Walker could possibly return to the Charlotte Hornets this offseason.
Walker signed a two-year, $18 million deal with the Knicks during the 2021 offseason and is more likely to be traded near the draft than bought out.
Asked if Walker has been at the Tarrytown facility, Tom Thibodeau said, “No, he’s away from the team. That’s the way it is. He’s rehabbing, taking care of what he has to take care of.’’
Thibodeau said Walker is not working with team trainers.
“No, he’s away from the team,’’ Thibodeau said. “And that was agreed upon. Our management, his agent and Kemba, we just felt that was the best way to handle it.’’
