3. Kemba Walker

The Oklahoma City Thunder acquired Kemba Walker, along with a 2021 first-round pick and 2025 second-round pick from the Boston Celtics earlier in the offseason. In exchange, they sent Al Horford, Moses Brown and a 2023 second-round pick to Boston.

While Walker would be an upgrade for the Thunder, he does not sound like he will be long for Oklahoma City. They are in the midst of a rebuild and are looking to flip him again.

With there still being a need for an experienced point guard on the roster, the Chicago Bulls are one team that could get involved in the Kemba Walker trade talks. His scoring punch would give Chicago a third go-to scorer behind Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic. Walker would also take some of the playmaking pressure off of LaVine.

Last season in 43 games Walker averaged 19.3 points and 4.9 assists while managing offseason knee surgery. He showed that he can still be productive, but Walker should be a backup plan for the Bulls.

Kemba Walker would help the Bulls, but his limited impact defensively is as big of a reason as any that they should look elsewhere first before targeting the former UConn product.
