It looks like Kemba Walker will be sitting on the sidelines for the remainder of the New York Knicks’ season. Is his time with the Knicks coming to a close?
Well, the New York Knicks are continuing to have an extremely interesting season. Kemba Walker has apparently come to an agreement with the Knicks that he will sit out for the remainder of the season.
After playing just 37 games this season and averaging just 25.6 minutes per game, it appears as if Walker won’t be investing more energy in helping the Knicks move forward. According to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Walker and New York have agreed to have him sit out for the rest of the year.
According to Wojnarowski, it looks like the Knicks will explore trade options for Walker in the offseason.
It sure looks like Walker’s time with the Knicks is wrapping up sooner rather than later.
New York Knicks: Will Kemba Walker play for New York Knicks?
This move is a weird one, but it’s important to remember that there’s no real way New York will be in the playoffs this season.
Prior to formally putting Walker on the sideline, the Knicks were already on a three-game losing streak and are currently sitting at the 12th seed in the Eastern Conference with the season winding down.
Don’t expect this team to make any sort of miracle run as the regular season comes to a close.
Walker’s time in New York has been incredibly underwhelming and now it’s ending in an incredibly underwhelming way. It remains to be seen where Walker will end up playing next season and which teams will be interested in possibly trading for him.
