Report: Boston Celtics trade Kemba Walker to Oklahoma City Thunder

Kemba Walker’s time with the Boston Celtics is over. On Friday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Celtics will send Walker, the 16th overall pick in the 2021 draft, and a 2025 second-round pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Al Horford, Moses Brown, and a 2023 second-round pick.

Trade speculation has swirled around Walker since the last offseason, when reportedly Boston was shopping him around on the trade market. He signed a four-year, $140 million max contract in 2019 after spending the first eight years of his career with the Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets.

While in Boston, knee problems have limited him to 99 of 144 games over two seasons.
