The Boston Celtics are getting in on the busy week across the NBA. Boston has traded All-Star point guard Kemba Walker, the No. 16 overall pick in this year’s draft, and a 2025 second-round pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Al Horford, Moses Brown and a 2023 second-round draft pick, the Celtics announced Friday. 953 View Profile

  • 2021 first-round pick
  • 2025 second-round pick

Boston trade grade: B

This move is more about financial flexibility for the Celtics than the players who they get back in the Walker trade.

It’s still unclear what the Celtics plan to do with Horford, because he could be a positive piece for next season, or they could deal him for a pick or another player in a package deal. OKC already has a treasure trove of draft picks that now includes three first-round picks this year, including the No. 4 overall pick and the 16th pick just acquired from Boston.
