Kemba Walker, Enes Kanter introduced as Boston Celtics

BOSTON (AP) - Kemba Walker will try to make the Boston Celtics' rebuilding period a short one.

The former Charlotte Hornets guard was introduced at the Celtics' practice facility in Boston on Wednesday. He replaces Kyrie Irving, who was acquired amid much excitement two years ago. Walker will wear No. 8, meaning fans with Antoine Walker jerseys from the late 1990s can bring them out at the Garden again.

Also Wednesday, the team made the signing of former Kentucky basketball center Enes Kanter official.

He will wear the No. 11 that was worn last year by Irving.
