The Boston Celtics and the rest of the NBA will kick off free agency on December 9th now that a new CBA is expected to be ratified in the next couple of days.

Like many teams in the league, the Celtics will face a couple of polarizing decisions on how to fill out their rosters this year.  Boston is one team in particular that has a lot of free agents, so the team will have to make quick decisions regarding their future in order to stay competitive.

Should the team re-sign Glen Davis, Jeff Green and Delonte West?  Is it possible for them to go after one of these guys and then bring in a decent player like Carl Landry or Shane Battier?

Which players should they look to for veteran minimums?  Allen Iverson, anyone?

While these questions are flying among fans who would like to speculate on the Celtics' plans, it’s a lot more streamlined than some might think.  Of course, while this year’s free agency period has only two major scenarios for Boston, how they work themselves out is anybody’s guess.

In an attempt to clarify the Celtics' free agency situation, here are two ways the team can stay competitive while satisfying the question of whether or not they should go after their own free agents.
