Time is running short for the Boston Celtics this season. The offseason is fast approaching, and the team has a lot of decisions to make concerning its future.
A great chunk of those questions will hopefully be addressed over the summer with the 2014 NBA draft and free-agency period. However, what happens before then may actually decide how Boston proceeds down those two avenues.
In what remains of the 2013-14 NBA season, the Celtics need to figure some things out. What they learn about their own players, impending free agents and their general standing around the league will help make those decisions this summer.
Boston may be falling out of the running for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, but there is still plenty of intrigue in these final weeks. Pay close attention and you could learn a lot.
