Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan made a statement last Friday stating that he would only trade All-Star point guard Kemba Walker for another All-Star. This statement effectively quieted most of the trade rumors surrounding Walker as it is highly unlikely that we could receive such level of compensation in exchange for him. Jordan believes that the Hornets can still compete in the playoffs as the team currently sits as the No. 11 seed and are 5.5 games behind the Milwaukee Bucks who currently holds the last playoff spot.
