Kemba Walker joins Celtics
Kemba Walker will try to make the Boston Celtics' rebuilding period a short one.
The former Charlotte Hornets guard was introduced at the Celtics' practice facility in Boston yesterday. He replaces Kyrie Irving, who was acquired amid much excitement two years ago. Walker will wear No. 8, meaning fans with Antoine Walker jerseys from the late 1990s can bring them out at the Garden again.
Also yesterday, the team made the signing of centre Enes Kanter official. He will wear the No. 11 that was worn last year by Irving.
