Does Jayson Tatum’s latest tweet hint at a possible Boston reunion with Kemba Walker?
#Jayson #Tatums #latest #tweet #hint #Boston #reunion #Kemba #Walker Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
The Dallas Mavericks signed Kemba Walker earlier this season for some experienced help and depth off the bench. Last night the Mavericks lost a tough game at home to the Boston Celtics 124-95. Today, the team announced that they are waiving four-time All-Star Kemba Walker as his salary would be fully guaranteed starting tomorrow. Walker may not be out of work just yet as one of his former teammates took to Twitter after the news broke.
As a Maverick, Walker only played in nine games this season, averaging 8/2/2/. He signed for the veteran minimum in late November. Former teammate Jayson Tatum took to Twitter today after it was announced that Walker had been waived and he hinted at a possible reunion with his teammate.
Massachusetts sports betting sites have the Celtics at (+375) to win the Finals this season.

Mavs are without Kemba Walker, but his former teammate may want him back in Boston
Kemba Walker’s bright spot with the Mavs this season was his 32-point game against the Cavs on 12/17. In the tweet above, you can see that Jayson Tatum didn’t say any words at all in his tweet, instead using three emojis to get his point across, and it certainly worked. Walker spent two seasons with the Celtics, where he averaged 20/4/5 in 99 games played.
Money was one reason the team gave up Walker, but the other reason was the Mavs wanted younger players to have more chances at game time and it opened up a roster slot. All 30 teams (as of yesterday) can now sign free agents on 10-day contracts. Dallas will likely explore that option to fill the open roster spot.
McKinley Wright IV is a two-way contract guard who deserves more playing time for the Mavs for playing quality defense and adding depth to the rotation. The Mavs are also looking to give way to rookie Jaden Hardy, who scored 15 points in 15 minutes in his loss to the Celtics last night.
At 32, Walker’s career in the NBA is far from over, but he will be looking for a new home for now. He’s a 36 percent career three-pointer who has a knack for scoring in this league.
