New York Knicks, Kemba Walker agree to shut him down for remainder of 2022 season

Kemba Walker’s first season with the New York Knicks hasn’t gone the way he hoped for and he’s ending it now.

Walker and the Knicks have agreed to shut it down for the remainder of the 2022 season with the preparation for next season.

As Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN explains, Walker will have one year left in the two-year deal he signed with the Knicks, so it’s possible that Walker could end up being traded over the summer.

In 37 games with the Knicks, Walker is averaging 11.6, 3.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds for the Knicks. The 11.6 points is the lowest of his career and the lowest since his rookie season.
