The Boston Celtics appear to have found their replacement for outgoing point guard Kyrie Irving.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics and free agent point guard Kemba Walker have agreed to a four-year, $141-million contract.
Walker, 29, averaged 25.6 points, 5.9 assists and 4.4 rebounds in 82 starts with the Charlotte Hornets last season, numbers that helped him earn All-NBA Third Team recognition.
Walker spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Hornets after being drafted by the organization with the No. 9 pick in 2011. The former University of Connecticut standout was named an all-star in each of his last three seasons playing in Charlotte.
