It's likely that Jeff Green, a restricted free agent, will be back with the team next season.
The two biggest free agents are Glen Davis and Delonte West.
West missed a large amount of time due to injury, but he still might be in the mix for a multi-year extension. The biggest issue concerning West when he came to Boston last season was his off-the-court activity and all the negative baggage surrounding it.
For the most part, West was a model citizen last year. While he didn't offer much during the regular season, he was phenomenal during the Miami playoff series. One could argue that he even outplayed starter Rajon Rondo.
West offers the team a unique combo-guard player who can defend, pass, shoot the ball well and create his own offense. He can be utilized as both a backup to or in tandem with Rajon Rondo.
There is a bigger question of whether or not Glen Davis will return. After putting in some productive years for the Boston Celtics, his time in green may have run its course.
Baby had a forgetful second half and a dreadful playoffs, which Doc Rivers attributed to a mental strain from his pending free agency.
Davis insinuated that he wanted out of Boston when he recently said: "I feel I have a lot more to my game than people see...I want the responsibility of being more of an impact guy."
If it was up to both sides, Glen Davis probably wouldn't be back in a Celtics uniform next season. But, a lengthy lockout—when teams will be unable to sign or negotiate with free agents—could change a few things.
If games are missed and the Celtics are unable to quickly sign and integrate new players, Davis' stock could rise as a player who knows the system very well and has produced in it.
Also, the uncertainty of the salary cap and the new CBA could cause teams to shy away from signing Davis and other players to lucrative deals. He might not find what he's looking for on the free-agent market.
