Boston Celtics: Predicting the Depth Chart at Every Position

Will the Celtics starting 5 look the same?

The Boston Celtics have had an absolutely manic free-agency period. At season's end, there were 11 players no longer under contract, excluding both Chris Wilcox and Jeff Green, who were lost for the season.

With their depth chart due for some changes, they have made moves to bring a few of those players back. They also lost a big player in Ray Allen, utilized three draft picks and signed an outsider in Jason Terry.

There could have been a massive overhaul for last season's Eastern Conference runner-ups, but it appears GM Danny Ainge has focused a lot of his energy on bringing back last year's team. There will be a lot of familiar faces in green next season, but the depth chart will see some significant changes as well.

With Allen gone and incumbent Avery Bradley recovering from shoulder surgeries, the SG position may be up for grabs to start the season. As will be the frontcourt position not held by Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett.

The returning players will have a leg up in knowing coach Doc Rivers' system, but there are a bunch of newcomers, young and old, who will soon be clawing their way up the depth chart.
