Lonnie Walker IV is a professional basketball player in the National Basketball Association. He plays shooting guard and small forward for the San Antonio Spurs.
Lonnie Walker IV was born in Reading, Pennsylvania on December 14, 1998. He is the son of Tamica Hall and Lonnie Walker III. He was raised in Reading and attended high school at Reading Senior High School, where he started playing varsity basketball as a freshman. He averaged eight points per game as a freshman, which he more than doubled as a sophomore. After having a shortened season due to injury, Walker was able to return and post an average of more than 17 points per game as a junior. That same year, he led his team to the PIAA Class 4A state semifinals. He performed well in the semifinals recording an average of 17 points with five rebounds and four assists per game.
Walker gained a reputation for being a good shooter, with solid ball-handling skills, and the ability to shoot from the outside or finish at the rim. He was named the 2016 Pennsylvania Gatorade Player of the Year. He also played in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League and helped his Amateur Athletic Union travel team to the Team Final from the Philadelphia area. He averaged 16.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.3 steals per game while playing club basketball as a junior.
During his senior year of high school, Walker averaged 18.4 points per game. He broke the school record for points scored, by scoring a total of 1,828 points, and helped his team to their first-ever state title. During the game, he recorded 22 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists. By the end of his high school career, Walker had been named County Player of the Year three times. He was a 2017 McDonald’s All-American, a 2017 Jordan Brand Classic All-American, and was named the 2017 AP Pennsylvania All-State 6A Player of the Year. He was ranked No. 12 in the ESPN Top 100 and named a 2017 Max Preps All-American, honorable mention.
Walker was recruited by the University of Kentucky, University of Arizona, Villanova University, and Syracuse University. He committed to play college basketball for the University of Miami, during his senior year of high school.
His first game for the Miami Hurricanes was against Gardner-Webb University. Walker came off the bench and scored 10 points with five assists in the blowout win. Less than a week later, he was forced out of the game against Texas A&M because of an injured ankle. He returned on November 22, when they played La Salle University in his hometown of Reading, Pennsylvania. He scored five points in that game. Walker also recorded 12 points and five rebounds in a game against Princeton.
Walker’s first collegiate start came against Boston University in early December, and he recorded 26 points and seven rebounds in that game. In a game against Lousiville, he scored 25 points and forced the game into overtime. Walker was also instrumental in wins over Wake Forest, Notre Dame, and Boston College. He averaged more than eleven points per game in the one season he played for the Hurricanes. He decided to forego the rest of his collegiate eligibility and declared for the NBA draft.
In 2018, Walker was drafted by the San Antonio Spurs and he played with them during the NBA Summer League. At the end of the summer session, the team signed him, though he did not make his professional debut until January of 2019, due to a right medial meniscus tear. He was only able to play in 17 games that season, but averaged three points and one rebound per game.
In the following season, Walker started in 12 of the 61 games that he played in and would record his best professional game, with 28 points, four rebounds, three steals, and a block. He also averaged more than six points and four rebounds per game that season. During the 2020-2021 season, he started in 38 of the 60 games that he played in and averaged 11 points, two rebounds, and one assist per game.
Walker is well known for his charitable efforts. He, along with his dog, was once a spokesperson for a PETA ad campaign and he gifted 300 pairs of shoes to his hometown athletic league. He also created The Lonnie Walker IV Foundation (The LWIV Foundation) so that he would be able to share his time and resources with communities in need. The foundation oversees the running of his annual youth basketball camp which is administered free of charge.
In 2021, Lonnie Walker IV applied for a federal trademark registration for a logo for The Lonnie Walker IV Foundation, which includes the foundation’s name and the initials “LW,” in stylized form for charitable fundraising and charitable foundation services.
