Kemba Walker On His Future

Ah forgot about that, thought it was closer to 180. 200 then maybe? 205? I don't entirely trust what the team has said publicly, shelling out that much money is a big commitment. 

I agree, I like Kemba as a player but things being what they are.. I wouldn't sign him. I'd have traded him for Draft picks last year myself.

We should have traded him and tanked. 7-8 seed is only good for 1st round sweeps. 

The lottery is fixed.  Tanking does Charlotte no good.  Seriously

Russell is not good. High volume low efficiency chucker. 

You are miss informed or just plain blind.  He had a great year last season.  Stupid comment.

I really want to  believe him.  But the competitor that he is.  If we dont make moves before FA to put something with him.  I dont see how he'd turn down a Dallas max deal, goi g to a competitive team

If Mike doesnt resign Kemba he is clueless and needs to sell.

Especially at a discount.  20 mill per is some serious money doe.

Interesting to see how low he's willing to go if he re-signs.  Love Kemba, but he's also propped up by this fanbase A LOT. He was a borderline 3rd team All-NBA guy.  On a decent team, he may not even sniff that and the max is out of the question anyway. 

Also unpopular, but even at a discount it might be better off for all parties involved for Kemba to take the max with NYK or whoever else.  Kemba at 25-30 million per year at age 33-34 is still somewhat okay (maybe)...but only if this team has been stripped and actual talent has been put around him. Not exactly an easy task the next couple of years.  Is he fine being an underpaid star on a rebuilding team the next couple of years?  I would think not.  And if he does re-sign, how much continues to be mortgaged to put a "contender" (for the 4th best East team) around him?  If Kemba is the best player on your team...you're not contending for poo.  In the East next year, Milwaukee, Toronto, Boston, Philly, Indiana, Brooklyn, and even a team like the Hawks could all potentially be better, even if Kemba re-signs. 

Where this could get interesting though, is if he does re-sign at a discount...because he could be one helluva trade piece in a year or two if he doesn't like the direction of the team. Receiving team gets a let's say 31 year old Kemba at 25-30 per year, Hornets get a young potential player or two plus a nice pick? Works best for all parties IMO.

Kemba will sign for less than the supermax, but other than that, we're not getting a discount. Someone's gonna offer him 4 yrs/$140 million. That's the floor for Kemba.

    • You can look at this glass half empty of glass half full. Half empty. The o-line can't protect Cam and wasn't properly address in the off season like I wanted. Cam's body is breaking down, and we have poop backups. Greg's body is breaking down. We don't have a dominant DT like Kris Jenkins, and we don't have dominant DE like Peppers, so 4-3 won't be great. We don't have a dominant NT like Vince Wilfork, so 3-4 won't be great. Our secondary lacks a Josh Norman type DB who will make big play INTS and pass breakups. Our passing game might be spooky bad, like no complete deep passes for multi-game stretches. We face the Saints (SB contender), Falcons (solid team), and the much improved Bucs. Yikes. Half full. We have speed on offense, and speed kills. CMC's burst is nothing short of elite, and teams will have to scheme their defense to contain him. Moore and Samuel are play-makers, and add to that combo the intelligent and extremely talented Greg Olsen and you have enough weapons on offense to do well. Cam might just have a healthy season, and if he does, then the talent is there to win. The o-line just needs some time to gel as the season moves along, but the talent is in place. The d-line looks solid on paper, and our secondary should do better than last season with more pressure being applied from Burns and company.  I can be negative or positive.
    • If anyone here or anywhere doesn’t think Cam is close to retirement, go watch a lowlight reel of all the huge hits he’s taken over the years.
