Chronicle news services Updated 10:24 pm PDT, Sunday, June 30, 2019 While Kevin Durant’s prospective move from the Warriors to the Nets was the biggest news on the first official day of NBA free agency Sunday, he was hardly the only big name to grab attention. Also headed to new teams are Kemba Walker, Jimmy Butler, Al Horford and Malcolm Brogdon. Here are some of the other moves and deals Sunday: • A person with knowledge of the situation says that Walker has told the Celtics he will leave the Hornets to sign a four-year, $141 million contract to join Boston.

A new Interview Magazine Q&A featuring Sixers wing Jimmy Butler cropped up on the internet this week. The interviewer? Mark Wahlberg, of all people. The two are good friends, apparently, which is fun since Wahlberg once portrayed a Philadelphia athlete on screen but in reality roots for Boston sports teams.The friendly Q&A touched on plenty, but to his credit Wahlberg started the interview with a bang. The discussion begins with all the talk about Butler's headstrong personality, and the people he clashes with. Like, say, Tom Thibodeau, the former Wolves coach from whom Butler demanded a trade earlier this year. From the interview: WAHLBERG: What did you think about Coach Tom Thibodeau getting fired? [The Minnesota Timberwolves president and coach was let go in January.] BUTLER: I think everybody knew it was coming. I hate to see it happen to my guy, though.
