The trade gives Boston some financial flexibility while bringing Horford back to a fan base that certainly had nothing but love for him while he was here.
And even though Walker was brought in to replace Kyrie Irving, his departure certainly wasn’t as tumultuous as Irving’s. Despite it not working it out with Walker and the Celtics, there’s still clearly nothing but love from Marcus Smart.
“One of the best teammates I’ve ever had!,” Smart tweeted. “Fam for life! @KembaWalker.”
The offseason has just begun, and the Celtics still need a head coach, so we’re far from done.
