ESPN reported on Friday that the Charlotte Hornets are now open to entertain trade offers for their dynamic point guard, who was an All-Star just a year ago. It appears as though the Hornets are looking to clean house.

The Hornets had made available their entire starting lineup, including forward Nicolas Batum (four years, $100 million), center Dwight Howard (two years, $47 million), forward Marvin Williams (three years, $42 million) and wing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (three years, $39 million). The hope is that they can get a bright, young player or a first-round pick (plus other assets).

If the Knicks eventually decide to join the fray in the Walker sweepstakes, Beerman said a source close to situation expects the Knicks' trade package to include Ntilikina, a future first-round pick (2019 perhaps) and Joakim Noah's albatross contract. Cousins will be a free agent this summer, though New Orleans has plans of signing him to a long-term contract. Walker is the Hornets' most productive and likely most popular player.

The Charlotte Hornets really want to have a clear out and get rid of all their bad contracts and untradable assets, so they're doing their best to make themselves as appealing as possible to every team in the National Basketball Association. One would think that Detroit must be willing to take on one of the four contracts mentioned above in order to complete a deal involving Kemba as shedding salary seems to be the Hornets' number one priority at the moment.

Walker's current contract has him making $12 million a year, which is actually a steal considering the amount of production he brings to the team on a consistent basis.
