It appears that Jayson Tatum is lobbying for a reunion with Kemba Walker.
Moments after the Dallas Mavericks released Walker from their lineup ahead of the season’s guarantee deadline, Tatum posted a tweet that hints at a potential interest in a reconnection on the side of the Boston Celtics.
Kemba notably had a two-year run as a Celtic from 2019 to 2021, wherein he served as the team’s starting star point guard and averaged 19.9 points, 4.8 assists, and 3.9 boards in 99 games played.
Though situations have now gradually shifted, with Walker being a journeyman now while both Celtics and Tatum are clear-cut powerhouses, their bond still glows as brothers at the end of the day.
As such, in hindsight, it would be difficult to imagine if team president Brad Stevens will entertain the possibility to reunite with Walker, as Boston now has a backcourt logjam with Marcus Smart, Derrick White, Malcolm Brogdon, and Payton Pritchard taking their respective parts and roles under Joe Mazzulla.
Only time can tell what will happen, but Walker can still be that beneficial one as a backup guard from other teams as he gave the Mavs a brief scoring presence in the nine games he played for them.
