The rumors surrounding Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker are still very much in play, and while the All-Star floor general wasn’t involved in the recent trade his franchise made, reports say owner Michael Jordan is looking for another All-Star in return, looking to package backcourt mate Nicolas Batum in any deal, per Jordan Schultz of Yahoo! Sports. As it’s been reported before, the Hornets are listening to offers, and Walker’s name is often the first to pop up in any conversation, and while Jordan and the front office have to consider the best path for the team moving forward, they’ll likely put quite the expensive tag on their young point man for any team looking to acquire him. Charlotte has been rumored to be looking to shed all the oversized contracts they’ve piled up over the years, dangling pretty much the entire starting lineup with names like Dwight Howard and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist high on the list.
