Hornets' Clifford: Kemba Walker will never average 30 points


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Although Hornets coach Steve Clifford said guard Kemba Walker is not the type of player to average 30 points per game, he did say that Walker can be a dynamic player, reports The Charlotte Observer.

Clifford added that on an ideal team, Walker would be considered the third or fourth scoring option.

With Clifford admitting the Hornets lacked offense this season, he said the team would like to add a proven scorer during the offseason.
