The problem is that Jordan won't trade Kemba Walker unless it is for an All-Star player.
Still, Mark Cuban has never been much of a fan of rebuilding, so he could just shake things off to try and make a playoffs run, landing Nicolas Batum and Kemba Walker in exchange for their future first round pick, J.J.
It is interesting to hear that the Cleveland Cavaliers want to trade for Kemba Walker but they will have to give up something huge in order to bring him to Cleveland. I love Kemba Walker.
It's unclear how far these trade discussions got but I would assume not very far considering that Charlotte was looking to dump salary and probably wanted one of the Bucks' young prospects in return.
"Yes, it's disappointing where we are, but I haven't given up on the season".
But moving the former University of CT product would mean a huge shift in the direction of the organisation and it would, therefore, take a quality offer in return for Charlotte to part ways with him. As the February deadline nears, he is officially on the block.
The 27-year-old Walker has spent his entire seven-year National Basketball Association career with the Hornets/Bobcats franchise.
The New York native has been the team's best and most consistent performer during his spell.

Jordan revealed that he reached out to his star after reports surfaced about him potentially being traded and explained to him that they were not actively looking to move him.
The Hornets had already made available (four years, $100 million), (two years, $47 million), (three years, $42 million) and (three years, $39 million), league sources said, but those players and their contracts are largely unattractive in the marketplace.
However, in the Monday interview, Jordan didn't rule it out, even while expressing his support for the 27-year-old point guard who is averaging 22 points and six assists this season.
"I certainly haven't given up on our best player". "I'm not looking to trade Kemba, but I would listen to opportunities".
"This is where I got my opportunity", said Walker, the team's first-round draft choice in 2011.
It'll be interesting to see how this plays out and what effect it could have on Walker for the remainder of the campaign.
