An NBA source is saying a Kemba Walker trade is “imminent,” following the four-time All-Star’s trade from Boston to Oklahoma City earlier this month, per a report from the New York Daily News.

It is unclear if “imminent” means right away or just that it’s inevitable. The latter would be less of a surprise for a Thunder team that went 22-50 in 2020-21 and is in full rebuild mode, but either way, per the report, Walker may not be in Oklahoma City long.

Walker, 31, was traded along with the 16th pick in this draft and a 2025 second-rounder to OKC for Al Horford, Moses Brown and a 2023 second-round pick on June 18.

The UConn product, who was drafted No. 9 overall by Charlotte in 2011, had an injury-plagued season in 2020-21, playing in just 43 games and averaging 19.3 points per game — his lowest scoring average since 2014-15.
