BOSTON — The Celtics' new point guard has a message to Boston: Let's do this.
Veteran point guard Kemba Walker agreed to sign a four-year $141 million maximum contract to join the Celtics. Walker is a three-time All-Star who was named Third-Team All-NBA in 2019. He will immediately replace Kyrie Irving, who agreed to a four-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets Sunday night.
"Charlotte….. you are my people forever. You’re family, straight up. I love you," Walker wrote.
In his message to Boston and Celtics fans, Walker introduced himself, explaining the type of person and leader he is.
Boston 25 News cameras saw Walker with GM Danny Ainge outside of the team's practice facility in Brighton.
"Boston….. I'll see you all in September. I'm ready. I'm truly ready. Let's do this," he wrote.
