Dropped by the New York Knicks, Kemba Walker has found a base. He will be Luka Doncic’s teammate on the Dallas side. Conference finalists in the last play-offs, the Mavericks remain on four defeats in a row. They are in 11th place in the Western Conference (9-10) and have been looking for a creator to enrich their back lines since the departure of Jalen Brunson … in New York.
The veteran leader (1.83 m, 32 years old) will take the place of the Argentinian Facundo Campazzo, whose contract, which was not guaranteed, was cut by the Texas franchise to free up a spot in its workforce. Walker, a four-time all-star with a career disrupted by recurring knee problems, landed in preseason in Detroit. The Pistons did not count on the former franchise player from Charlotte, who also passed through Boston, and had thus separated from him in mid-October, before the resumption of the regular season. During the past fiscal year, Walker had 11.6 points and 3.5 assists in 37 games played with New York.
