Kemba Walker looks good in Celtic green.

The All-Star point guard reportedly has agreed to a four-year, $141 million max contract with the Boston Celtics, giving the franchise a great replacement for the departed Kyrie Irving.

Walker has not been formally introduced by the Celtics, and his contract cannot become official until July 6. But he was seen wearing a Celtics sweatshirt at the Auerbach Center in Brighton, Mass., on Monday, and Chad Amaral of Boston 25 News tweeted a video of a brief exchange between Walker and C's president of basketball operations Danny Ainge outside the facility.

We don't yet know which number Walker will choose with the Celtics.

He wore No. 15 at the University of Connecticut and during his eight-year stint with the Charlotte Hornets, but that number is retired in Boston in honor of Tommy Heinsohn. He could take No. 11, which was Irving's number. Another possibility is No. 4, which was last worn by another star point guard, Isaiah Thomas.

Walker is sure to bring excitement to TD Garden next season regardless of his jersey number. He averaged a career-high 25.6 points per game last season and is able to effectively shoot from 3-point range and finish at the rim.
