Walton also reflected on his highschool season, nothing that the end – a 30 point regional final loss to Detroit Country Day – was disappointing but making it clear that it was a successful season overall.
“It ended kind of bad, not bad but not the way expected to do. We had a good run and, personally, this was my best year.”
Now his sights are set to Las Vegas where he’ll make his summer league debut with the Michigan Mustangs. The Mustangs made a large off season acquisition, adding Flint Beecher point guard Monte Morris to the roster, and the move excited Walton.
“I feel good about it. I missed [AAU basketball]. Two basketball players are going to love to play together regardless [of position].”
Together, Morris and Walton have the potential to be one of the more dynamic guard duos on the summer circuit.
