It seems that German floor general Dennis Schroder is not the only Boston Celtics alumni in the mix to suit up at the point for a team other than the Celtics next season, with Marc Stein revealing in a recent edition of his Substack NBA newsletter that former Boston point guards Isaiah Thomas and Kemba Walker are both in the mix to help out the Charlotte Hornets at the 1 off of the bench next season.
IT, who finished the 2021-22 season with the Hornets on a positive note, would have the inside track between the two given Thomas is a free agent. Currently, Walker is still a member of the Detroit Pistons organization after having been dealt there from the New York Knicks.
