The Boston Celtics are in no position to stand pat.

Just how busy this offseason turns out to be will depend largely on the opportunities that present themselves. The organization won't be doing itself any favors by trying to rush things. That creates an intriguing dynamic, made all the more alluring in comments made by president of basketball operations Danny Ainge to Boston radio station 98.5 The Sports Hub (per ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg):

I’m going to try to blow off some fireworks, but I have to be patient as well and we have to make sure that we don’t do deals just to do deals. We have to do the right deals. Those are a lot harder than most people think or believe or understand. I’m not making any promises, we have a busy summer ahead of us, and there's a lot of different directions we could go. 

This would be a good time for fireworks.

And we don't mean sparklers.

This is time for a big bang or two, moves or acquisitions that will fundamentally reshape the roster both now and in the future. The Celtics are otherwise in danger of getting sucked into a protracted rebuild with no end in sight.
