One of the players included in a lot of trade chatter the past couple of weeks is Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker. Being a former All-Star and with his ability to score in different ways, it is very understandable why there are a number of teams intrigued by the prospect of adding him to their fold — just like the Minnesota Timberwolves. However, Minnesota might need to offer a different package that does not include Jeff Teague if they want to secure Walker’s services. That is apparently the case as the Hornets are not interested in taking on his salary. Instead, Charlotte is asking for a number of pieces for its star guard, according to Darren Wolfson of KSTP. Jeff Teague is still under contract until the end of the 2020 season and is slated to earn $38 million in the next two years, per Spotrac. The Hornets understand that they will be tied to him long term.
