Starter: Rajon Rondo
Now the lone remaining starter from the 2008 championship squad, Rajon Rondo is going to have to shoulder a tremendous burden on both ends for the new-look Celtics.
Though he averaged 13.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 11.1 assists per game on 48.4 percent shooting from the floor during the 2012-13 season, he appeared in just 38 games, tearing his ACL in a double-overtime loss at Atlanta.
Despite the injury, Rondo is believed to be progressing well and should be ready to play by the start of training camp, according to Danny Ainge through WEEI.
Trade rumors involving Rondo have swirled since the Garnett-Pierce deal, including one involving the Dallas Mavericks. However, according to ESPN's Marc Stein, that would necessitate Dirk Nowitzki going to Boston, an unlikely proposition at best.
Still, Rondo is one of the league's most versatile players and, if his injury does not hamper him too much, should be a foundational piece for the rebuilding Celtics.
Main Sub: Courtney Lee
Courtney Lee didn't exactly impress during his first season in green, averaging 7.8 points, 2.4 boards and 1.8 assists while shooting 37.2 percent from three-point range. He had some difficulty grasping the Celtics' offensive and defensive schemes while shuffling between the point and the 2-guard spot.
However, since Boston is staggeringly thin at the point, they should give Lee some more minutes there in the 2013-14 campaign. He's a decent ball-handler, a good shooter and a tenacious defender who is capable of locking down opposing guards.
For better or worse, Lee is the best option Boston has behind Rondo.
Additional Depth: Phil Pressey
That's right, just Phil Pressey. ESPN Boston reported that the Celts waived Terrence Williams, who they used at the point in the playoffs, leaving Boston with the undrafted Pressey, a talented but turnover-prone passer who signed a contract with the team following the draft, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
Expect the C's to grab a pure point in free agency or via another trade.
