Mavs waive Walker, could take longer look at rookie Hardy

DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Mavericks have waived veteran guard Kemba Walker, moving on before his guaranteed salary kicked in and possibly creating more chances for rookie Jaden Hardy. Walker signed in November after going the first six weeks without a team. The 32-year-old has been plagued by knee issues in recent years. He scored 32 points while playing 42 minutes in an overtime loss to Cleveland but ended up missing two games not long after for injury recovery. The Mavericks traded into the second round to draft Hardy last summer.
