The 2013-14 Boston Celtics are made up of overpaid veterans, solid role players, young talent and one hobbled superstar. In other words, they're rebuilding.
To gradually improve as an organization, the best plan of attack is first shedding the overpaid veterans and solid role players for some draft picks and younger, cheaper talent.
The Celtics already have a boatload of draft picks, but they could stand to acquire more pieces still in the early stages of development. Guys in their early 20s who possess serious potential and will hopefully blossom at the same time the franchise is ready to contend again.
Here are six players Boston should target on the trade market this season. Nearly all are still on their rookie scale contracts (and will be there for quite a bit of time), and could be brought along in a more conducive environment with Brad Stevens and the Celtics.
They're ranked by how productive their careers have already been and how good they are today.
