Kemba Walker was one of the most hyped addition to the New York Knicks. The point-guard has proven his salt as an elite athlete. While fans expected a lot out of the player, it seems that he has been wearing a bit too thin in the courts.
Walker has been averaging a score of 15 points per game only. He also is not in the rotation in around 50% of the games he’s part of. Kemba’s performance has urged the need of some measures.
Knicks’ head coach Tom Thibodeau has been trying salvage the situation and gauge the team’s scope by mixing up and experimenting with the rotations. In case of the point guard, one of such experiments is giving Kemba’s spot to Alec Burks.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that the Knicks have now demoted Kemba Walker to a diminished role. As per the experimental drills, Burks will be taking the space for the main point guard.
The Knicks are still in the early phase of the season. However, the Eastern Conference is just around the corner, and most teams need to round up their best players as competition gets more and more fierce.
