Celtics: Take 'em or leave 'em?
Blow it up? Keep the band together for just one more season? There's no easy solutions for Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge. What we do know is that Boston has 14 of 15 players from the season that just ended under contract for the 2013-14 season. But which of them deserve to be back?
Here's where you come in. Step into Ainge's shoes and tell us which Celtics you'd bring back and which ones you'd send packing. Then tell us why in the comments section.
Notes: Chris Wilcox is the only free agent; Paul Pierce, D.J. White, Shavlik Randolph and Terrance Williams have non-guaranteed contracts for next season. For longer explanations on our reasons for taking 'em or leave 'em, check out this post in our Celtics Blog.
