    BOSTON - Veteran point guard Kemba Walker has agreed to a four year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agent has told ESPN. 

    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. 

    Also Sunday, Terry Rozier agreed to a three-year, $58 million deal with the Celtics, who agreed to trade Rozier to Charlotte in a sign-and-trade, a maneuver believed to be made because Boston is hoping to clear up enough space to make an offer to Al Horford.
