News: Walker is expected to be in Boston on Sunday to finalize an agreement with the Celtics, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Impact: Walker to the Celtics rumors started emerging a couple of days ago, and it appears those talks were warranted. Assuming there are no hiccups on Sunday, Walker will move on from Charlotte, the team that drafted him No. 9 overall in 2011. The three-time All-Star will replace Kyrie Irving, who is virtually a guarantee to take his talents elsewhere at this point. In joining a better team, it's possible we see Walker's usage decline, especially if Gordon Hayward is able to get back to his pre-injury production. Still, it's hard to imagine Walker not being a No. 1 or No. 2 option on offense, and he should maintain his quality efficiency.
