ANALYSIS: This is a bold move by Thibodeau that undoubtedly reflects the Knicks' struggles so far. Walker has averaged 11.7 points and 3.1 assists per game in his first season with New York, who signed him to a two-year deal worth $17.9 million this offseason. It remains to be seen if this is a long-term move or merely a short-term swing by Thibodeau. The Knicks currently sit 11-9.
