The Charlotte Hornets have reportedly put Kemba Walker on trade block

The Hornets have made the playoffs just once since 2009 and have yet to make it past the first round.

Kemba Walker #15 of the Charlotte Hornets reacts after a play against the Golden State Warriors during their game at Spectrum Center on December 6, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Through 41 games, Walker is averaging 21.7 points, 5.8 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 34.5 minutes per game this season. I recently covered Kemba Walker as a potential trade target for the Utah Jazz following a piece from The Washington Posts' Tim Bontemps in which he described how the soon-to-be financially struggling and under-achieving Hornets may have little chance for truly hitting the reset button without moving Kemba.

The Hornets have quietly won seven of their last 10 games. The only way to possibly get those contracts off the books is package said player with Kemba.

Hornets head coach Steve Clifford said he hadn't seen the report when the team's practice ended on Friday afternoon, but when told of the details he called them nothing but rumors.

The NBA trade deadline arrives on February 8. Well, it seems a sticking point with Charlotte will be the desire for another team to be willing to take on one of the Hornets' many big contracts the team wants to clear out for more future cap flexibility, which is something other teams have been less willing to do.

Sound the alarms Detroit Pistons fans, there is a star point guard available on the market! He is the team's best player. "I go hard each and every day", Walker said. I know there are a few teams out there who are probably already chomping at the bit and trying to find a way to make a deal for the former All-Star before the postseason push begins.

While Brogdon, the reigning rookie of the year, is a solid asset, the addition of Eric Bledsoe at the point earlier this season has moved him to the bench, where he's become the Bucks' de facto sixth man. This solidifies the rumor that the Hornets will be looking to rebuild in the coming years.

Walker was asked today if he would be devastated by a trade from the Hornets.
