The Charlotte Hornets are considering a reunion with former All-Star guards Kemba Walker and Isaiah Thomas.
“The Hornets are considering a reunion with former franchise cornerstone Kemba Walker among other point guard options, sources told The Athletic.
The team is also interested in the potential re-signing of Isaiah Thomas, who had strong play last season and emerged as a positive locker room leader in Charlotte,” Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Both players are free agents and their arrival would bolster the team’s backcourt line. Walker got traded to the Detroit Pistons from the New York Knicks a few weeks ago and agreed to a buyout with Detroit to become a free agent.
For his part, Isaiah Thomas spent the last part of the season with Charlotte, averaging 8.3 points in 12.9 minutes in 17 games.
The Hornets aim to remain a playoff contender next season and want to bolster their roster, after bringing Steve Clifford back as head coach.
