Kemba Walker could find himself back in NBA trade rumors for the Boston Celtics as they look to gear up for a potential title run with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Walker, 30, has been a great player for the Celtics, but injuries have dampened his potential with the team.

The Celtics want to solely build around Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown and having an overpriced liability at the point guard position isn’t biding well for the team. The Celtics could be in the mix to trade away Kemba Walker and add a younger and cheaper option at the guard positions instead.

Walker, when healthy, is a force to be reckoned with on the floor. Walker, this season, has averaged 15.0 points per game, 3.5 rebounds per game, and 4.3 assists per game. Walker has also shot 34.2 percent from the floor and 30.6 percent from beyond the arc.

Kemba Walker could be a great veteran presence to a team that needs a guard to compliment their unit through the 2023 season. Walker could also be dealt to a playoff team that could flip him to acquire some draft picks following the season.

There’s a lot of potential suitors for Kemba Walker, but I broke it down to a top three for ya. Here’s a look at three possible landing spots for Kemba Walker this season.
