Kemba Walker Is Returning To The Charlotte Hornets

Kemba Walker is returning to the Charlotte Hornets as a player enhancement coach.

Walker, who announced his NBA retirement this past week, is the Hornet’s franchise career leading scorer with 12,009 points.

He joins new head coach Charles Lee’s staff, which also includes Lamar Skeeter, Josh Longstaff, Chris Jent, Blaine Mueller, Ryan Frazier, Matt Hill, and Jermaine Bucknor.

Walker, a four-time NBA All-Star, leads the Hornets in field goals, 3-pointers, free throws, and minutes played. He ranks second in assists and third in steals.

The 34-year-old concluded his career after playing briefly with AS Monaco, helping them win the French League championship. Charlotte also hired Zach Peterson as assistant coach/director of player development and added Austin Vereen and Zach Thomas as video coordinators. The Hornets brought in Reggie Cameron as an associate video coordinator and two-way enhancement coach, and retained John Bowen as a video coordinator.
