The Boston Celtics have had an offseason made of nightmares, but still seem to be set up well for the future. They have all of their young talent and a few draft picks left in the war chest, and with the departures of Kyrie Irving and Al Horford, they’ll have some cap space to make things interesting.
And make things interesting they shall. Marc Stein reports Boston has emerged as a “stealth suitor” for the superstar point guard.
The Celtics, I'm told, are emerging as a stealth suitor for Charlotte Hornets free agent Kemba Walker— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) June 25, 2019
After sending off Aron Baynes on draft night, the team projects to have about $30 million in space if they renounce all of their free agents. This gives them the space to pursue a max free agent, should they choose. Walker would fill the most obvious hole at point guard in the team, given Irving’s expected departure and the unknown future of Terry Rozier.
