Via the San Antonio Express-News:
Spurs guard Lonnie Walker has caught fire, just in time to perhaps get paid this summer.
The 23-year-old has averaged 18.8 points in 10 games since the All-Star break, putting together the most consistent stretch of his career with restricted free agency looming.
Even with his professional future at a crossroads, Walker has vowed not to think about anything beyond the 11 games remaining on the Spurs’ schedule after Friday.
“I am just worrying about the games, honestly,” Walker said. “I am not too worried about after the season, what am I going to do, what happens next.”
The Spurs are 27-43 this season, which is the 11th best record in the Western conference.
Their leading scorers so far in 2021-22 are Dejounte Murray at 20.9 ppg and Keldon Johnson at 16.4 ppg.
