Kevin Garnett is the biggest free agent on Ainge's list this offseason, although there are many who feel KG retires after 17 NBA seasons. Garnett changed the franchise upon his arrival five years ago, and the Celtics should try to do all they can to retain his services. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)

It was an up and down season for Allen, who will turn 37 over the summer. The all-time three point king will have plenty of suitors, with Miami and New York already rumored to be interested, and wants to start rather than come off the bench. Both of those will likely drive up the price and make Allen too rich for the Celtics to bring back. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)

Brandon Bass opted out of the final year of his deal, and will test the free agent waters. Bass said after Game 7 in Miami he would like to return, and the Celtics will likely try to retain his services after a solid first season in Boston. Bass fit into the starting lineup well after Garnett's move to center, and could be one of the younger players Ainge builds around for the future. (Photo by J. Meric/Getty Images)

The Celtics voided Jeff Green after he underwent heart surgery prior to the season, making him an unrestricted free agent. Green has hinted he would love to remain a Celtic, and if healthy he could be huge as Paul Pierce's backup But if a team throws too much money his way, the Celtics will invest elsewhere.

Pietrus was decent for the Celtics in 2012, when he played. He battled through a slew of injuries, from a bad knee to a viscous concussion in the middle of the season. His shooting was erratic at times, but his defense was there for the most part. He would like to return to Boston, and the Celtics probably feel the same way, if the price is right.

The reserve guard did not do much during the regular season, but his veteran presence played a big role during the Celtics' postseason run. Dooling is a very serviceable reserve, with a good shot and decent defense, and could come back on the cheap. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

For awhile, it didn't even seem like Daniels was on the team. But he made a few appearances here and there, coming in to spell Paul Pierce on defense. The Celtics even had him on LeBron James during the playoffs. It's unlikely Daniels returns, as the C's will try and get someone to make a bigger impact off the bench.

Wilcox was impressive when he was on the floor for the Celtics, running alongside Rajon Rondo and actually pulling down a few rebounds, but required mid-season heart surgery. If healthy, he is worth the Celtics bringing back, given their lack of depth in the front court. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

O'Neal is a free agent after being waived by the C's at the end of the season, and will not be back in Boston anytime soon. After two disappointing, injury-plagued seasons of making roughly $6 million per, it's safe to say he isn't wanted by the team or the fans. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

Stiemsma was impressive at times during his rookie season, blocking a team-high 85 shots during the regular season, but struggled with the Celtics' team defense. But as a young player who plays defense, he could be back in green next season. Stiemsma has a qualifying offer for just over $1 million. (Photo by J. Meric/Getty Images)

Hollins was brought in mid-season and the Celtics veterans, especially Kevin Garnett, fell in love with him. He took minutes away from Stiemsma at the end of the season and in the playoffs, and could easily make his way back on to the team next season. (Photo by Drew Hallowell/Getty Images)
