Rumor: Kemba Walker Trade Inevitable


Boston Celtics guard Kemba Walker has reportedly been on the trade block for some time now. 

And Kemba is tired of hearing his name mentioned in potential deals.

Reports indicate that Walker was almost traded at the deadline for San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge. That deal, of course, won't be revisited, as Aldridge has since retired, But that doesn't mean that the new Celtics' regime led by Kemba's former coach Brad Stevens, isn't still looking to trade him. 

“The Celtics front office was looking for a way to get out from under that contract,” said Sports Illustrated‘s Chris Mannix. “They ultimately were not able to do it despite having conversations with multiple teams."

Mannix says that Walker is one of the most loyal players in the sport, so for him to continually hear that the Celtics have been trying to deal him, has left a bitter taste.
