Walker added some athleticism to the Knicks’ roster and gave the coaching staff more depth on the bench. Walker has the ability to stretch the floor with his three-point shooting and can occasionally attack the basket for a dunk.
In the 2011-12 season, Walker averaged 6.1 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.
