All-Star point guard Kemba Walker plans to reach a four-year, $140.6 million agreement with the Boston Celtics once free agency begins on Sunday, a person familiar with the deal told USA TODAY Sports.
The person requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly until the deal is official. Free agents cannot sign deals with teams until July 6.
Walker, a three-time All-Star who had one of the best seasons of his career in 2018-19 for Charlotte, fills the hole at point guard. He averaged 25.6 points, 5.9 assists, 4.4 rebounds and shot 43.4% from the field, including 35.6% on 3-pointers.
If there was any doubt that Kyrie Irving was leaving Boston in free agency (and there shouldn’t have been), it’s clear now.
