With the looming NBA free agency free-for-all getting ready to begin on Sunday, the Boston Celtics and guard Kemba Walker appear to be headed toward a deal.

ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting sources are telling him that the C's have moved to front-runner status to land Walker. Kyrie Irving is expected to sign elsewhere, leaving the Celtics with a max-contract deal for another player.

Walker is the former UConn star and has been a Charlotte Hornet throughout his NBA career. He is now 29-years-old and a three-time all star. Walker averaged almost 26PPG last season.
