Kemba Walker considered signing with the New York Knicks as a free agent, but he ultimately decided to join the Boston Celtics.
“It was [a consideration]. It was," said Walker. They were definitely one of the teams I was looking at in free agency. But I picked Boston. I just felt it was a better fit for me.”
Walker signed a four-year, $141 million deal with the Celtics.
Walker was asked if the Celtics expressed interest.
“I guess they did. Obviously, the players and teams can’t communicate.”
