NBA: Pistons waiving All-star guard Kemba Walker
The Detroit Pistons are expected to waive four-time All-Star guard Kemba Walker before Monday’s deadline to set the regular-season roster, The Athletic reported Friday.
Walker, 32, was acquired from the New York Knicks in a draft night deal on July 6. The Pistons are on the hook for the $9.2 million remaining on his expiring contract.
In his lone season with the Knicks, Walker appeared in just 37 games, all starts, but was left inactive for the final 23 contests. He averaged 11.6 points, 3.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds.
Over his career with the Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets (2011-19), the Boston Celtics (2019-21) and New York, he has averaged 19.5 points, 5.3 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 741 games (696 starts).
