Enes Kanter is a man of diverse interests ... one of which includes grilling his new teammate.

The Boston Celtics introduced Kanter and Kemba Walker at a press conference Wednesday that was followed by breakout sessions with reporters. And just as Walker's scrum was wrapping up, a certain 6-foot-11 big man lobbed one final question from the back.

"One question, Kemba: How much are you going to pass me the ball?" Kanter said jokingly.

Kanter's bit temporarily caught Walker off guard, but the point guard quickly recovered.

"Zero," he replied with a smile, before adding, "Just playing, I got you."

Walker averaged 5.9 assists per game with the Charlotte Hornets last season (the second-highest total of his career), so chances are he'll be feeding Kanter plenty of helpers.

The Celtics are hoping their two free-agent acquisitions can mesh well with a returning group of young players led by Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, who will be ready for a fresh start after a rocky 2018-19 campaign.
