Kemba is basically as good as Kyrie without the drama

Celts should get Kemba, and Cousins. They’d be solid.

Jazz got Conley, Pacers cant afford him... next best choice was the Celtics if he wants to play for a playoff team. However Ainge needs to trade for a big.

Great move for Kemba and Celtics

Tatum and brown grow..: Kemba brings positivity and leadership. Smart takes over the glue. Shit all the Celtics need is a decent big or two... they even have the option of trading Hayward for a big 🤷🏾‍♂️..... not saying they have to because I think Gordon recovers , but it’s an option for sure

Jordan loves gambling away millions of dollars but is not willing to give Kemba Walker the Max. Thank god. This is the only way for Kemba to finally get out of that hell hole.

Gordan hayward needs to actually be a max player for any of this to work

What is it with the Celtics and point guards from the 2011 draft? First IT, then Kyrie, now Kemba...

Jordan is a fool. He should have traded Kemba if he had no plan of resigning him.

As a life long Celtics fan I'm sad to be losing Kyrie's skills and talent, not sad to be losing him in the locker room though. I would love it if we could get Kemba.

The Celtics still have a projected lottery pick next year and they could find a big man to finalize the puzzle. Trust in Ainge.

If Hayward comes back ti himself, the Celtics are just one big man away again from becoming contenders again.

Great move, but losing Al Horford was too detrimental to The Celtics defense.
Cass Cassidy
Cass Cassidy:
I love Boston and I really like Kemba, I live in NC and he’s a great player with a big heart... but Boston getting past Philly (Embiid) and Milwaukee (Giannis) is going to be nearly impossible without a BIG. No Horford, no Baynes.... wtf are they going to do against bigs that can ball?
Samson Manase
Samson Manase:
MJ ain’t giving kemba that super max ! Cmon
Brian Bairos
Brian Bairos:
Can't wait to hear how his Nets teammates need to play better defense after Kemba drops 40 points on Kyrie again.

Lol...good luck Brooklyn.
Sam

Now the Celtics just need to work a three team deal that would bring Clint Capela to Boston. Particularly the one that would send Butler to Houston

Celtics could've built a 12-15 man rotation from 2011 alone with 2-3 players in every position by now lmao. Straight depth!
Greg Griffin
Greg Griffin:
Great...another ball dominant pg that will handcuff the development of the Jay's. I'd rather stick with Smart as a starter, then bring in Carsen and Waters off the bench. We don't need a ball dominant center either, but we have a rim protector in Williams and Tacko (if he can learn quickly)
Jack Mass

Kemba is a tier below Kyrie but he might do better because he might fit better

Celtic ain't rebuilding they fixing some of the problems Kyrie out Al out Rozier out Baynes out all these guys had some kind of issues Kyrie negative attitude Al could rebound Rozier missed a lot of baskets Baynes was solid but we need to clear up cap space. We still need a good big man because we are weak in the center position. So let see what moves Danny can make this up coming week.

I love the "Boston is rebuilding talk" lmao make no sense. The foundation is already built we just haven't had the player to push us over the edge. Top 3 seed without kemba easy, philly is a joke

Giorgio Monticelli
Giorgio Monticelli:
I love the fact that all the media that have trown confetti up in the air in the last few days, after the Kyrie and Horford news, now are returning to their usual depression after the evidence that the Celtics will still be a very good team at the end of the summer.
We are not dead yet, put away your bottles of champagne and open it when the Knicks will return to the playoffs. It wil be a loooooooooooooong wait.

Chill man, free agency has not even started, why the hell are talking about free agency just after raps won the chip, they more excited about players changing teams than who wins the championship
Jonathon Odum
Jonathon Odum:
I thought the Lakers should undoubtedly trade their young core but the Celtics should hold onto theirs. Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Robert Williams could develop into a championship team.

Once if C do sign kemba walker then it left not much salary cap to sign another legit big who's in the mold of Al Horford. However Danny always have some Ace card on his sleeve and there are Euro league big man and also free agent big like Robin Lopez
Eric Blake
Eric Blake:
I love Kemba showing some loyalty to Charlotte, saying he’d stay and take less money to help the team. But let’s be honest, they’re going nowhere fast and it’s time for him to do some winning. As a Lakers fan, it hurts to say this, but he should go to Boston and build around him, Tatum and Brown.

Think it's a bad signing for Celts (ie: they won't win the title with Kemba and that should be their only goal). However I think it's a great opportunity for Kemba to rewrite history and be like look at what I did with this team and look at what Kyrie did.

They need to make a move for Capela , can get him for pretty cheap with the Rockets wanting to off cap room for butler , they should try to acquire Capela over cousins on a 1 year deal , Capela will do more for them and be a better all around team player which they have to have to make that trio work
