In the ever-changing NBA world, if you're not moving forward, you're moving backward. There is no standing still.
That's why with more than three months to go before the the 2013-14 season tips off, it's crazy to assume that the end of July—typically the busiest month of the offseason—would mean the end of the league's player movement.
The Boston Celtics still need to decide if they're going to fully embrace a rebuilding process by trading the rest of their veteran players. With guys like Rajon Rondo, Brandon Bass and Gerald Wallace still on the roster, the C's are currently toeing the line between starting over and staying respectable.
