Kemba Walker has spent his entire career in Charlotte. But his future with the franchise that selected him with the 9th overall pick back in the 2011 NBA draft seems to be getting cloudier by the day.

The former NCAA National Champion was quick to dismiss rumors of him getting ready to suit up for his hometown New York Knicks, as he is set to enter free agency after the 2018-2019 season. Moreover, he did give the Hornets some sort of sigh of relief when he said that he plans to put on a Hornets jersey for a long timeA and has no plans of leaving.

However, his outlook on free agency seems to have changed over these past few weeks as his recent statements suggest that he has opened his thoughts to whatever may happen.

a€œIa€™ve been on one team in seven years, going on eight years,a€ Walker toldA Scoop B Radioa€™s Brandon Robinson. a€œSo when ita€™s my time, Ia€™ll make a decision. Thata€™s all I said. I said, a€˜I didna€™t see myself in a Knicks jersey because Ia€™ve only been in one jersey.a€™ You know what I mean?a€

a€œI just want to make the playoffs,a€ Walker said. a€œThata€™s it. I want to get back to the playoffs consistently, so (this coming season) is the first step for consistent playoff runs.a€

For Walker, it seems that priority number one is making the playoffs a€“ and making it consistently.
