The Boston Celtics have the luxury of having four players participate in USA Basketball Men’s National Team training camp this week in Las Vegas, Nev., which means they’ll be able to get a head start on developing some chemistry for the upcoming season.
Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart all are on the Team USA roster and, per NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg, the group went out to dinner together Sunday night.
Of course, Walker is the newcomer of the foursome, but it doesn’t sound like he’s shy. Smart told Forsberg that Walker, “talks more than (he) thought. And that’s a good thing.” The Celtics guard added their time at training camp together is important for Boston’s chemistry.
Walker, 29, averaged 25.6 points and 5.9 assists in 82 games for the Charlotte Hornets last season.
Coming off a roller coaster year, we’re sure Celtics fans will love Walker’s presence on and off the court.
