Cohen’s Analysis: It’s ambiguous to what extent the Celtics are rebuilding. They traded Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to Brooklyn and didn’t make a splash in free agency.
However, Rajon Rondo, who expects to be healthy by early next season, is still on the roster and he and Jeff Green is probably strapping enough to challenge for a playoff spot.
If Danny Ainge has more up his sleeve and is staring fiercely at next year’s loaded draft class, Rondo will eventually get traded and Boston will be in full renovation mode.
