One of Brad Stevens' first moves as Boston Celtics GM was to trade Kemba Walker to the Oklahoma City Thunder for veteran center Al Horford. While the Celtics chose to move on from Walker, he is still a capable player that can help a team with his ability to score. 

Despite some of his negative recent performances, Kemba Walker is still a former All-Star who could help any contender as a supplementary scorer. On NBA Insider Zach Lowe's recent podcast, he suggested that both the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers would be interested in trading for Walker.

Both Los Angeles teams are contenders, each with their duo of superstars. It is easy to imagine how Walker could slot in as a scorer behind Anthony Davis and LeBron James, and the same can be said about his fit next to Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Kemba Walker would definitely help both teams. It remains to be seen whether Walker ends up in Los Angeles, but it seems as though it is certainly a possibility.
