Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Boston Celtics

The Celtics have just one player (Evan Turner) currently in line for unrestricted free agency this summer, but with Amir Johnson and Jonas Jerebko on non-guaranteed deals for 2016/17, and Jared Sullinger and Tyler Zeller facing restricted free agency, there could be a decent amount of roster turnover in Boston. Of course, that doesn’t mean we should expect the Celtics to select players with all eight(!) draft picks they’ve stockpiled for 2016, but those selections, along with the affordable guaranteed salaries and the max cap room on Boston’s books, give the team some interesting options for the offseason. General manager Danny Ainge will be tasked with making sure all the puzzle pieces fit together, and while he has a ton of assets to work with, it remains to be seen whether Ainge can maximize them to turn a solid playoff team into a championship contender.

    I’m not a math person or anything but my count has the Celtics at at least $12mil in cap room. Sounds like this could be a fun offseason.
