NBA Rumors: Why Kemba Walker Wants To Sign With Celtics In Free Agency

by

NBA media and talking heads love to say that the Boston Celtics are not a legitimate destination for marquee free agents. Despite landing Al Horford in 2016, Gordon Hayward in 2017 and receiving a fake commitment from Kyrie Irving in 2018, Boston has a reputation for being unpopular among NBA stars.

So, why is Kemba Walker reportedly set on signing with the Celtics once free agency opens? Believe it or not, the 29-year-old believes the Celtics are (gasp) a strong franchise with a great future.

Check out this tweet from Celtics reporter Jeff Goodman:

Weird.

Signing Walker would help the Celtics send an important message to the rest of the NBA, that they’re not ready to rebuild and still are an attractive destination for stars. Now, if Boston could lure back Al Horford (which reportedly remains a possibility) the Nick Wrights of the world really would look stupid.
