On Tuesday night, reports of a potential deal that would send Grizzlies center Marc Gasol to the Hornets heated up, with some combination of wings Malik Monk and/or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist as the chief return piece for Memphis. But league sources told Sporting News that the Hornets and Grizzlies do not have an agreement in place, and that there is increasing skepticism on both sides that a trade can be brought to bear ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. The Hornets have had interest in Gasol for some time, but a deal has not progressed.
No one on the team understands the significance of Walker’s third consecutive All-Star nod more than Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who’s easily Walker’s best friend among his teammates. “Shit, man it means a ton to him and his career,” Kidd-Gilchrist said. “To his family, his friends. Even me. He’s an amazing person and a leader. I know for a fact he worked as hard as possible each and every single day he wakes up and it hasn’t changed a bit. So I’m happy for him and proud. I’m extremely proud of him. Extremely proud.”
