Kemba Walker, Celtics Motivated To Part Ways In Offseason

The Boston Celtics and Kemba Walker are likely to move forward with a trade scenario this offseason, sources tell Bleacher Report.

While Walker has two more seasons remaining on his contract at $36 million and $37.7 million and will make any trade difficult, both sides are motivated to get a deal done. Boston tried to trade Walker before the season started in a package for Jrue Holiday. Sources tell Bleacher Report that Walker was hurt by the efforts made by the Celtics to try to trade him.

Sources tell Bleacher Report that teams looking for a veteran scoring point guard will monitor Walker’s situation.

The New York Knicks previously had interest in Walker when he was a free agent and have a need at point guard along with cap space. The Dallas Mavericks are another team who could have interest.

The point guard market this offseason will be one of the more interesting to monitor as Kyle Lowry, Dennis Schroder and Mike Conley will also be free agents.
