The Boston Celtics have no plans to let Kemba Walker go, according to NBA insider Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated.

As Mannix reports, the Celtics are ‘very high on Walker’ and are considering him as one of the team’s leaders.

“They’re very high on Kemba Walker in Boston. I don’t get the sense that Kemba was ever in any serious threat of being traded,” Mannix said, via the Dale & Keefe Twitter.

Walker averaged 20.4 points, 4.8 assists and 3.9 rebounds for the Celtics last season.
