Walker says he'd take less than $221M to stay with Hornets

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Three-time NBA All-Star Kemba Walker said he would consider taking less money than he is eligible to make to stay with the Charlotte Hornets if that means helping them build a winning team.

Because Walker was named to an All-NBA team this season, the Hornets can offer him a five-year "supermax" contract worth up to $221 million - significantly more than the five-year, $190 million deal had he not been named All-NBA.

Other NBA teams can only offer a four-year deal worth $140 million when free agency begins June 30.
