Low-Cost Veterans for Boston Celtics' Rebuilding Project
USA TODAY Sports

Danny Ainge's decision to let Doc Rivers out of his contract and ship Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn was a clear signal that the Boston Celtics are beginning a rebuilding period.

While the roster still has young talent in the form of Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green and a few others, the team boasts little-to-no veteran presence and currently still has several significant holes despite adding depth with Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries and MarShon Brooks all coming to town.

Though Boston does not appear to be a legitimate contender for the 2013 offseason's higher profile free agents, the team still needs to be active this summer in order to shore up a few areas of concern, like the backup point guard and center positions and the addition of some consistent outside shooting.

None of the players on this list have anywhere near the name value of Chris Paul and Dwight Howard, or even pieces like Jeff Teague or O.J. Mayo, but all of them would be worthwhile additions to Boston both on the court and in the locker room.

Having mature, selfless veterans can often go a long way during a rebuilding process and, with that in mind, let's give the usual marquee names a rest and look at several cheap veterans who Boston would be smart to sign for the 2013-14 campaign.
