NBA Rumors: Hornets Consider Reunion With Former Face Of Franchise

The Charlotte Hornets are still looking for another reserve point guard, and according to NBA Insider Shams Charania, are considering bringing back the one-time face of the franchise. 

"Sources tell me the Hornets are considering a reunion with former franchise cornerstone Kemba Walker," reported Charania.

Walker, at age 32 and with numerous injuries in recent years, is likely no longer able to play starter's minutes, but the hope is that he could still bring a little punch off the bench. 

The four-time All-Star has a 19.5 points-per-game mark in his 11-year career, along with 5.3 assists. Last year with the New York Knicks he played just 37 games, averaging 11.6 points and 3.5 assists in 25 minutes per game. 

Charania says the Hornets are also interested in potentially re-signing Isaiah Thomas, who came in late last season and provided a nice boost off the bench and a solid leadership presence in the locker room. He averaged 8.3 points in 12.9 minutes per game in 17 contests with Charlotte. 

The Hornets are a bit hamstrung at the moment on their roster construction, says Charania, as they await the legal ramifications (and league discipline, we would add) of restricted free agent power forward Miles Bridges and the felony charges he faces.
