The Boston Celtics are in a position we have rarely seen them in: Rebuilding. The list of priorities for the Celtics this offseason is as long as a $ 100 grocery bill, but let's break down the five things that will be of the utmost importance for the Celtics this offseason.

5. Avery Bradley's Contract Situation

Rajon Rondo's future is in limbo, and Avery Bradley has stepped up and handled the role admirably for the Celtics. Bradley's contract situation is big, because if Rondo leaves then the Celtics are going to have to seek an extension of Bradley's deal. The Celtics can't afford to lose both of their point guards.

4. Keeping Brandon Bass In Boston Green

As important as Rondo is to the Celtics, Brandon Bass is even more important, and he is a free agent this offseason. Danny Ainge is going to have to convince the steady Bass that the Celtics are not too far away from contending and to buy into the rebuilding program.

3. Determine If Jeff Green Can Be 'The Man'

Jeff Green showed flashes, but in order for the Celtics to move forward in their rebuilding program, Green has to become "the man" for a Celtic team that struggles to score on a nightly basis. This will also determine of the Celtics front office will be willing to pay him like "the man". This is a make-or-break year for Green.

2. Settle the Rajon Rondo Situation

The single biggest issue engulfing the Celtics right now is Rondo's contract situation. Rondo has stated that he really is not interested in being in a rebuilding situation, so the general consensus is that he will jet after next season. So now, the question for the Celtics is will they trade their star point guard or try to convince him that Boston is the best place for him to be?

What will go a long way in pushing the Celtics back into playoff contention and convincing Rondo to say in New England will be to lure top-tier free agents to Boston. Kevin Love has been rumored to be interested in playing for the Celtics, and if Ainge can land him, the Celtics could be right back in the thick of things in the East.
