The Boston Celtics have been the best team in the NBA to this point in the season, sitting atop the Eastern Conference with an impressive 27-12 record. However, star forward Jayson Tatum seems to believe signing one player would drastically improve their roster.

The Dallas Mavericks parted ways with four-time All-Star Kemba Walker after playing only nine games for the organization. Tatum took to social media to acknowledge a transaction made by the Mavericks on Friday and seems to want Walker to return to the Celtics.

In response to the move, Jayson Tatum tweeted the eyeball emoji followed by two shamrocks.

Walker was actually released just one day after the Mavericks played the Celtics, where Walker was seen chatting it up with Celtics star Jaylen Brown before the game.

Walker spent two seasons with the Celtics, and it seems that those years had a profound impact on some Boston players that are still with the team.

Celtics forward Grant Williams spoke about his relationship with Walker in a conversation with The Athletic, calling him “The best vet I’ve had”.

Walker made one of his four All-Star appearances during his time with Boston. He is certainly not the same player now that he was back then, but he could be a positive locker-room presence on a clear NBA title contender.

His time with the Mavericks was not anything to write home about, averaging only 8 points per game while playing sixteen minutes per game.

If Walker doesn’t end up joining the Celtics, it may be difficult for him to find another roster spot in the NBA considering his lack of production for the past two seasons.
