The Charlotte Hornets are aiming to bolster their depth in the points guard position, and they look at two familiar faces for the role. The team is considering bringing back Kemba Walker and/or Isaiah Thomas, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Both players will provide a strong veteran presence, and both are available as free agents.

Walker, 32, played the first eight seasons of his career at Charlotte, and was selected to three All-Star teams as a member of the Hornets. He is the all-time franchise leader in points scored and minutes played. Since leaving the Hornets on free agency in 2019, Walker has spent time with the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks, although he hasn’t been able to recreate the individual success he had in Charlotte with either team. Walker was recently traded from the Knicks to the Detroit Pistons on raffle night in June, but the two sides agreed a buyout deal that will allow Walker to become a free agent and sign wherever he wants.

Thomas, 33, also has some familiarity with the Hornets, having spent time with the team at the end of last season. In all, Thomas appeared in 17 games for Charlotte and averaged 8.3 points, 1.4 assists, and 1.2 rebounds in 12.9 minutes per performance.

The two players will likely pass their prime as players, but they can still prove effective in a limited reserve role, which they would have had at Charlotte who plays behind the LaMelo Ball. Walker was a fan favorite during his time with the Hornets, so a reunion between the two sides would be welcome in Charlotte.

Overall, the Hornets have been relatively calm this season. Aside from re-signing Cody Martin, the team hasn’t made any moves in free agency. Perhaps adding a veteran goalkeeper like Walker or Thomas will reverse this trend.
