Kemba Walker isn’t a high-maintenance player. He figures to get along with Brad Stevens and the rest of his new Celtics teammates. Boston, led by Walker, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Gordon Hayward, is looking to redeem itself after a disappointing 2018-19 season.
The Celtics lost Irving and Al Horford in free agency. Adding Walker and big man Enes Kanter were good moves. Walker is a three-time All-Star who has career averages of 19.8 points and 5.5 assists. Stevens is arguably the best coach Walker has had in his NBA career.
The Celtics have to be excited about the possibility of Walker and Stevens working together.
Celtics fans are eager to see how far Walker can take Boston in 2019-20 under the guidance of Stevens.
