Life Story & Timeline

2020

Walton joined the Los Angeles Clippers for the 2019 NBA Summer League. After the Summer League ended, Walton signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the team. Walton made the opening day 15-man roster. Walton was assigned to the Agua Caliente Clippers for the start of the G League season. He made key late free throws to seal wins for Agua Caliente in their first two games of the season. Walton remained deep on the Clippers bench early in the season as the team used Jerome Robinson and Terance Mann in the backup point guard role. On December 8, with JaMychal Green hobbled and Patrick Patterson, Rodney McGruder, and Landry Shamet sidelined Walton played his first meaningful minutes, posting a career-high 7 points and contributing to a win against the Washington Wizards. On December 31 (New Year’s Eve), he posted his first double digit scoring effort (10 points on 4-5 shooting) against the Sacramento Kings. On January 4, 2020, with Paul George joining Patrick Beverley on the sidelines, Walton made his first NBA start against the Memphis Grizzlies.

On February 6, 2020, Walton was traded to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for a protected 2022 second-round draft pick, and the Atlanta Hawks subsequently requested waiver on Walton.

On February 21, 2020, the Detroit Pistons signed Walton to a 10-day contract. On March 4, 2020, Walton was not retained by the Pistons.

2019

On October 18, Žalgiris Kaunas announced that they signed a contract with Walton until the end of the 2018–19 season. On February 12, 2019, Walton, whose playing time had started declining since December, left Žalgiris by terminating his deal with mutual agreement. He averaged 8.4 points and 4.4 assists in the LKL, and 4.6 points and 2.5 assists in the Euroleague.

Walton joined Alba Berlin in mid February 2019. He helped Alba reach the Basketball Bundesliga finals.

2018

On December 22, Walton received his first meaningful action.

Walton and fellow two-way contract signee Matt Williams Jr. were the only backcourt reserves after Waiters’ injury. On January 5, Walton was sidelined with an illness. Two days later, the Heat reassigned Walton to Sioux Falls and backdated the assignment to the 5th, leaving Walton with 14 remaining days of NBA service under his two-way contract. On January 9, 2018, Walton rejoined the Heat for two days. At the January 15 deadline, the Heat decided that Walton and Derrick Jones Jr. would be the team’s final two-way players for the season and made a personnel maneuver so that they had room for a $3.5 million roster exception to sign an additional player should Walton and/or Jones use all of their two-way contract NBA eligibility (Jones had 16 NBA days remaining and Walton had 12). Walton was readded to the Heat roster on January 17. In order to extend his NBA time, the Heat opted not to have Walton be with the team on travel days and some off days between games. With the Heat returning to health and being mindful of the February 8 trade deadline, Walton was returned to Sioux Falls on January 28. He was called up with four days of NBA service remaining on March 5 as the team endured injury concerns regarding Wayne Ellington and Tyler Johnson. Over the course of the season, Walton appeared in 16 games with the team.

On February 16 against (#11/#10) Wisconsin, Walton posted 5 points, 5 rebounds, and 8 assists, becoming the first player in program history to eclipse 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 400 assists. On March 5, Walton posted 18 points, 5 steals, and set the Michigan single-game assists record with 16 against Nebraska in the final regular-season game of his senior year, surpassing Grant who had twice totalled 14. Walton earned another Co-Big Ten Player of the Week honor (along with Caleb Swanigan) on March 6. Walton was recognized by both the coaches and the media as a second-team All-Big Ten selection. Walton was one of ten Big Ten players honored as All-District selections by the United States Basketball Writers Association.

Prior to the 2017 Big Ten Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament, Walton incurred stitches in his right leg for injuries sustained in an airplane accident on the way to the tournament. In the March 11 semifinal of the Big Ten Tournament against Minnesota, Walton posted a career-high 29 points including a perfect 10-for-10 on his free throws as well as a game-high 9 assists to lead Michigan to an 84–77 victory. In the championship game 71–56 victory over (#23/#24) Wisconsin, Walton posted 22 points for eighth-seeded Michigan. During the Big Ten Tournament, Walton averaged 20.5 points, 6.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals while shooting 22-for-23 from the free throw line. After the tournament, he was named Big Ten Tournament Most Outstanding Player.

In the first round of the 2017 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, Walton posted 26 points and 11 assists in a 92–91 victory over Oklahoma State. It marked the first time a player had had either at least 11 assists and 24 points or at least 25 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds in an NCAA Division I tournament game since Dwyane Wade in 2003. The team reached the sweet sixteen round of the tournament. Walton was included on the National Association of Basketball Coaches Division I All‐District 7 second-team on March 22.

He finished his career second in career free throw percentage (83.67%), third in career games started (126) fourth in career assists (499) and fourth in career three-point field goals made (233). He was selected to participate as a 3-Point Championship contestant in the March 30 State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships as part of the 2017 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament final four weekend. Walton finished third out of eight. Following the season, Walton was named team MVP. On April 30, 2017, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reported that he was named as an alternate to the NBA Draft Combine. Ultimately, Walton was invited to attend the combine.

Following the season, Walton went undrafted in the 2017 NBA draft and signed to play with the Orlando Magic for the 2017 NBA Summer League. Walton had an impressive summer league performance. He averaged 10.0 points, 3.5 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 20.5 minutes in four games while shooting 46.9% (15-of-32) field goal percentage and 50% (6-of-12) on three-point shots, and there was speculation that given the Magic’s point guard roster at the time, which included only Elfrid Payton (the starter), D. J. Augustin and the partially guaranteed C. J. Watson, that Walton might stick with the Magic. The Magic had a choice between buying Watson out for $1 million or guaranteeing him $5 million. Although the prediction that Watson was expendable proved to be correct, the Magic opted to sign point guard Shelvin Mack as their third point guard. On July 24, 2017, Walton signed a two-way contract with the Miami Heat, meaning he would split his playing time between the Heat and their G League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce. On October 23, Walton was assigned to the Skyforce with the expectation that he would spend most of the season in the G League.

Walton was listed as active for the November 5 game against the Los Angeles Clippers, but when the Heat blew a 25-point second half lead, Walton did not play. With Waiters absent and Rodney McGruder sidelined, Walton was active again the following night against the Golden State Warriors, when he made his debut, posting one defensive rebound in one minute of play. When Tyler Johnson was struck by illness, Walton stayed active after Waiters’ return, but was sent back to Sioux Falls after eight days with Miami, that included a stop in Michigan to celebrate the 2017 Big Ten Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament banner ceremony with the 2017–18 Michigan Wolverines men’s basketball team the day before the Heat visited the Detroit Pistons. On November 14, he played for Sioux Falls against the Austin Spurs, tallying 20 points and 9 assists in a 119–118 loss. Walton was called up several times thereafter: November 19–22, November 25–27, November 28–30, and December 15–. Walton converted 2 free throws on November 19 against the Indiana Pacers, and he posted his first NBA field goal (a three-point shot) on December 18 against the Atlanta Hawks.

On February 10, Michigan defeated Minnesota behind a career-high 26 points by Walton.
