NBA Insider reveals that two massive championship contenders are interested in acquiring Kemba Walker this off-season.
It’s fair to say that Kemba Walker’s time with the Boston Celtics wasn’t the best.
The player was brought in by the organization, in the hopes that he would take the franchise over the top in the postseason. Instead, the player, unfortunately, had constant run-ins with injuries. And after a point, he only started to become a liability for Boston.
That said, it was only a matter of time before the organization traded the star away. But not many saw the Oklahoma City Thunder being interested in the star.
Still, they gave away Al Horford for the player. And given the franchise’s past business, it is likely they are looking to flip him for more assets as well.
With that in mind, the Thunder have reportedly been looking for teams that would give them a fair return for the former Celtics star. And according to Zach Lowe, two massive teams could be willing to oblige OKC.
Zach Lowe reveals that both LA teams are interested in bring in Kemba Walker this off-season
Yep, both of them.
In a recent episode of his podcast ‘The Lowe Post’, Zach Lowe recently dropped a huge nugget about Kemba Walker’s potential future. Here is what he said.
“I think both LA teams are sniffing are going to be sniffing around Kemba Walker.”
At first, this trade doesn’t make sense for either LA team. However, once you look deeper, bringing in Kemba Walker could be perfect for both of them.
On the Lakers side of things, reports have suggested that Dennis Schroder is unhappy, and could leave this off-season. If that were to be the case, Kemba Walker could be the perfect third star to LeBron James and Anthony Davis, if he is given time to heal.

The Clippers have a similar problem as well. Reggie Jackson was phenomenal in the postseason for the franchise, hands down. But, there have been reports of problems when it comes to his contract, which could mean he is forced to leave as well.
If he does in fact leave in free agency, the Clippers would need a third star as well. And of course, Kemba Walker could be a good option.
Still, for now, this is just speculation. And until anything has been set in stone, we’d advise you to stay tuned for this one.
