The Bronx native appears to be on his way home. According to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski, Walker has agreed to a contract buyout with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and upon clearing waivers, plans to sign with the New York Knicks.

Walker had two years and $74 million remaining on the $140.8 million deal he inked with the Boston Celtics in 2019.

Kemba Walker (31, 1.83) was traded along with the 16th pick in this year's draft and a 2025 second-rounder to OKC for Al Horford, Moses Brown, and a 2023 second-round pick on June 18. Last season four-time All-Star guard averaged 19.3 points, 4.9 assists, and 4.0 rebounds in 43 games with the Boston Celtics.

With the University of Connecticut, Walker won the NCAA championship in 2011. He was drafter 9th overall by the Charlotte Hornets, where he spent the first eight years of his career.
