The Celtics are trading Kemba Walker, the No. 16 pick in the 2021 draft and a 2025 second-rounder to the Thunder for Al Horford, Moses Brown and a 2023 second-round pick, per @wojespn
So this means Brad Stevens 1st move in office, after coaching Kemba, was to immediately get him tf out 😂😂
Kemba isn't playing a second for OKC.
The Thunder turned Danny Green, Terrance Ferguson, Vincent Poirier, Moses Brown, 2023 2nd-Round Pick into —
Kemba Walker, Theo Maledon, Vasilije Micic, 2021 1st-Round Pick, 2025 1st-Round Pick, 2025 2nd-Round Pick
Kemba Walker is heading to the OKC Thunder.
Okay Brad Stevens!!! I love that trade because Kemba was in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown way. Carry the hell on...
Kemba just got traded for a industrialist 💀💀
thinks the Lakers should try to acquire Kemba Walker from the Thunder 👀
The Kemba Walker era in Boston was less successful than the Kyrie Irving era.
now that Kemba is no longer on the Celtics, NBA fans will start to like him and call him underrated again lol
Lakers fans y’all don’t want Kemba trust me 😂😂😂
New ESPN story with @wojespn
: Brad Stevens didn’t take long to make his first move as Boston’s president of basketball operations — and it’s a seismic one. https://t.co/POq9BxH4Ur
Any Celtics fan with contempt for Kemba is a grade A loser. Gave you a great first half of the season in his first year before an unlucky knee injury then was more than willing to take a backseat to the Jays which helped them develop. I’ll be rooting for him forever
First Horford, now Kemba: We’re going to brand this move — absorb a bad contract, rehabilitate the player and then move him for another distressed contract and a first round pick — the Sam Presti. As one exec texted, a Kemba-for-Porzingis swap next year seems inevitable.
"When Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are healthy, they're arguably a top-five, if not a top-three, duo in the NBA! ... [the Boston Celtics] might be the top team in the Eastern Conference come next year."
likes the Kemba Walker trade for Boston.
My reaction to the Kemba Walker trade
Some things I'm hearing in the aftermath of the Kemba deal:
-Cs feel better about their chances of re-signing Fournier now
-This doesn't necessarily mean Tristan Thompson's time in Boston is over
-Moses Brown was mostly added as a salary match but will get a look
Jayson Tatum pretending to be sad Kemba got traded:
Stevens got the job as GM and traded Kemba instantly never doubt this nigga will to win
Getting the 16th pick for Horford is robbery.
Even if they aren’t able to flip Kemba for anything (and I wouldn’t rule that out), this is an outrageous deal for the Thunder
Kemba’s gonna put up 25 PPG in the regular season and everyone is gonna meltdown “WHY DID WE TRADE HIM” then when he gets flipped to the Sixers and goes 4-18 in three playoff games again everyone will go “oh yeah”
remember when everyone said OKC should waive & stretch Carmelo Anthony?
they turned melo into:
‘20 1st (used to get Poku)
‘21 16th pick
‘25 protected 1st
‘20 2nd (Théo Maledon)
EuroLeague MVP Vasilije Micic
The devil works hard but Sam Presti works harder. https://t.co/8qJjSynyWA
