Bobby Marks ESPN 

The Kemba Walker $12M contract is one of the best values in the NBA and ranks 19th among point guards. Walker is extension eligible in the offseason (6 months after a possible trade) at a starting salary of $14.4M. A team that has cap space can renegotiate the Walker contract up until Feb. 28. The 2018-19 $12M salary can also be renegotiated starting July 6.
