NBA free agency doesn’t officially begin until Sunday, but teams across the league are already jockeying for position to sign the superstars on the market.
On Thursday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski dropped the first of what should be many “Woj Bombs” to come: The Boston Celtics have emerged as the favorites to sign the Charlotte Hornets All-Star guard Kemba Walker.
Walker “is expected to be offered a four-year, $141 million contract from the Celtics — a deal that he’s increasingly likely to accept, league sources say,” Wojnarowski wrote.
Walker is eligible for a supermax deal, with his being named to an All-NBA list this past season. He has also been rumored as a potential third piece to join LeBron James and Anthony Davis in a new “Big Three” for the Los Angeles Lakers.
