The Boston Celtics trade Kemba Walker to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a move that no one saw coming. Most everyone expected the Celtics to trade Kemba away this offseason. The Thunder were not on the list of potential teams for him to be traded too. Now the Boston Celtics trade Kemba Walker, the 16th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, and a 2025 second round pick in exchange for Al Horford, Moses Brown, and a 2023 Second-Round Pick.
Kemba Walker is getting traded just two years into a four year, $141 million max deal that he signed with the Boston Celtics in free agency 2019. He never truly lives up to the contract in his two years in Boston. It can be argued that that is because he now had other stars around him to feed the ball too. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are the forefront of the Celtics offense, not Kemba Walker. There was also the injury concerns with Walker.
Al Horford is heading back to Boston after two failed years away from the city that showed him so much love for three years. In Boston Horford averaged 13.5 PPG, 6.9 RPG, 4.6 APG, and 1.2 BPG. In his two seasons with Philadelphia and Oklahoma City, his numbers stayed on par with his Boston years. He could be a viable member of the roster even at 35 years old however he will probably be bought out.
