According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, star guard Kemba Walker and the Detroit Pistons are finalizing a contract buyout. Once Walker clears waivers, he’ll join the free agency.
The 32-year-old is owed $9.2 million by Detroit in 2022-23. The free-agent salary for a player with 10+ years of service like Walker is $3 million.
Four-time All-Star guard averaged 11.7 PPG on 36.7% from the 3 in 37 games with the New York Knicks this season.
