Dallas Mavericks Signing 4-Time All-Star

The Dallas Mavericks are on a four-game losing streak and have dropped below .500; they're in desperate need of a spark and according to reports this morning they're banking on 4-time All-Star Kemba Walker to ignite it. 

The Mavericks will be signing Walker to a one-year contract. Since arriving in Boston in 2019 and securing his fourth All-Star berth, it's been a tough couple of years for Kemba, as knee issues have limited his once immense talent. 

In February of this past season, the New York Knicks told him he would no longer be playing for them, and he was dealt to the Detroit Pistons this past June. But they, too, had no intention of having Walker join their team as he was thrown in strictly for them to absorb his contract. The Pistons waived him before the start of this season.

Walker averaged 11.6 points, 3.5 assists, and 36.7% on threes last season for New York, and has career marks of 19.5 points, 3.5 assists and 36% from beyond the arc in his 11 seasons.

The Mavs are hoping that Kemba can provide a ballhandling boost off the bench behind Luka Doncic, as well as adding some perimeter scoring. They'll be waiving Argentian guard Facundo Campazzo to make room on the roster.
