Kemba Walker, a four-time NBA All-Star, was formally released by the Detroit Pistons on Monday.
On Wednesday, the Detroit Pistons will host Cole Anthony and the Orlando Magic in Michigan for the start of the 2022–23 NBA regular season.
Teams had to trim their rosters as the season got underway, and the Pistons did so on Monday.
Walker played in 37 regular-season games for the New York Knicks last year, averaging 11.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game.
He was traded to the Pistons over the offseason, but it was obvious that he was not in their long-term plans.
The 32-year-old was formerly among the NBA's best point guards at one point.
