NBA free agency doesn't kick off for more than 24 hours, but one NBA star apparently knows where he plans to sign.

According to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Kemba Walker is "on his way" to the Boston Celtics.

Boston emerged as the favorite for Walker after the Charlotte Hornets lowballed him with an offer. Charlotte reportedly offered $160 million over five years - despite having the ability to pay him $220 over that same timespan.

Now, the Celtics have swooped in and are the odds-on favorite to land the star point guard.

"Boston's prepared four years, $141 million. They can still move some money around to get that max slot for him. [Walker's] moved on from Charlotte. Those two will get together on Sunday night as soon as they can. Kemba Walker is on his way to the Celtics," Woj said on SportsCenter.

After losing Kyrie Irving in free agency - not yet, but expected - the Celtics needed added depth at the guard spot.

Walker provides one of the best on the market and could fit well in Brad Stevens' system.

The Celtics could also lose Terry Rozier in free agency as well, so landing Kemba will be huge for the Celtics.
