Cody Zeller is trying to keep Kemba Walker in Charlotte one quarter at a time.
Hornets forward Cody Zeller is certainly getting a head start on Kemba Walker's free agency recruitment, tweeting on Sunday a photo of his fundraiser to keep Walker in Charlotte.
The sixth-year forward opened a lemonade stand on Sunday, selling the drink for a quarter a cup. Zeller certainly has a long way to go to reach his goal however, needing nearly nine hundred million quarters to match Walker's $221 million maximum salary available in free agency.
