Kemba traded for Horford
Celtics must have been really worried about his injury and contract. OKC gains another 1st and maybe another if Kemba can rehab there and they move expiring contract next year.
The Boston Celtics have agreed to trade Kemba Walker, the No. 16 pick in the 2021 draft and a 2025 second rounder to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Al Horford, Moses Brown and a 2023 second round pick.
Horford left the Celtics to sign with the Philadelphia 76ers during the 2019 offseason. Horford has two years and $53.5 million left on his contract, with a partial guarantee of $14.5 million for 2022-23.
Walker is due $73 million over the next two seasons. With the Thunder in the middle of a rebuild, they plan on working with Walker as they previously did with Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Horford.
