Celtics Are Now The Frontrunner To Sign Kemba Walker

General Manager and President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge of the Boston Celtics watches a game between the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Butler Bulldogs during the 2016 Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational basketball tournament at the Orleans

Here are 10 targets they could consider via trades or free agency.

The Boston Celtics have emerged as the frontrunners to sign impending unrestricted free agent point guard Kemba Walker, according to a new report from top National Basketball Association insider Adrian Wojnarowski. The latest team - the Boston Celtics. But Woj is the most respected, reliable reporter in the business. The Hornets can offer Walker the most money since he's eligible for the Supermax extension, but if Walker is focused on winning, there are other National Basketball Association teams that make more sense. He's one of the more loyal guys in the league, but you have to wonder if one of these prestigious franchises can figure out a way to lure him out of Charlotte. They have been clearing cap space in order to make a run at a significant free agent. He also averaged 4.5 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.3 steals, and 3.3 three-pointers per 36 minutes, earning third team All-NBA honors for the first time in his career. It would be an interesting core for the team and a competitive trio in the Eastern Conference as a whole. Irving was very public all season long about his dissatisfaction with the teams young players and overall performance, constantly making comments to the media.

Lampard on the verge of becoming Chelsea manager
Speaking to the media, the 21-year-old said: "Transfer ban is probably not what the club wanted but for us it is exciting". Someone you have grown up watching, been at Chelsea forever.

The Celtics go into the free agency period with a lot of questions as Irving and Horford will be free agents and Rozier will be a restricted free agent. It's no surprise, then, that both Smith and his colleague Adrian Wojnarowski are reporting that Walker is expected to sign with the Celtics.
