With the Boston Celtics off to a dismal 4-8 start, is it too early to start thinking about next season? This team has grown long in the tooth and lacks the firepower to make another deep playoff run. Some argue that they may not even make the playoffs.

Not so long ago, this team was able to drive to the basket and draw fouls. Nowadays, the Celtics just settle for jump shots. Their defense was once a brick wall, but now it leaks like a sieve.

So far in this young but not promising NBA season, the Celtics rank 26th in points per game at 89.8 and 28th in rebounds per game with 38.6.

Looking ahead to the 2012-2013 season, rebuilding is imminent. The Big Four will be blown up to start this team over from scratch. Next year, as much as $45 million in cap space could be cleared up.

Who will stay and who will go?
