Kemba Walker has agreed to a buyout with the Oklahoma City Thunder and plans to sign with the New York Knicks. (Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact:

The Thunder traded for Walker and the 16th pick in the July Draft, and already flipped that for two future firsts in a draft night deal. There is two years left on Walker's deal with a player option in the 2022 season. The Knicks were in need of a starting point guard with Derrick Rose likely remaining in his sixth-man role and that's what they'll get with Walker, who has struggled with consistency ever since he left Charlotte. He will look to lead the Knicks to another playoff appearance this upcoming season after falling to Atlanta in round one this past year.
