Knicks Guard Done For Season

The New York Knicks and Kemba Walker have agreed that the veteran will sit out the rest of this season. 

With Walker being shut down for the season, he will begin preparing for next year. However, it's also rather clear that the 31-year-old will be playing for a different franchise by then if both parties get their wishes. It's easy to understand why, as the four-time All-Star has not been a fit and even was taken out of the team's rotation this campaign.

Walker signed a two-year, $17,894,491 contract with the team during the offseason. In 37 games this season, he has averaged 11.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. However, it seems that this is where his statistics with the organization will come to a close. 

It will be interesting to see what happens from here with Walker. There should be a decent amount of interest around the league due to his strong overall resume. In 741 career games between the Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets, Boston Celtics, and Knicks, he has averaged 19.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 5.3 assists.
