After just two years with the Boston Celtics, point guard Kemba Walker appears to be on the line.
According to Brian Robb of MassLive, the Celtics are expected to try to swap the former all-star point guard.
“Kemba Walker is one of the most overpaid players in the NBA,” wrote Robb. “And league sources expect the Celtics to look into entering a trade to allow some flexibility in current and future wages.”
Walker, who missed the last two games of the Celtics playoff series against the Nets due to a knee injury, only played a total of 43 games in the regular season. He averaged 19.3 points and 4.9 assists per game.
The 31-year-old will be owed over $ 72 million over the next two seasons before becoming a free agent in 2024.
The Celtics had a disappointing 2020-21 season with 36-36 and were ricocheted off the first round of the NBA playoffs by the Brooklyn Nets in just five games.
