Boston made a terrific last season charge, but the team lost in 7 games in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals to Miami and now will look towards the off-season to add some youth and scoring.
With the likely departure of Ray Allen and possibly Kevin Garnett, Boston will need some quality players added to their roster if they want to contend in the East next season. The Celtics will have some salary cap space to make some moves and the latest rumor from Bleacher Report suggests they add O.J. Mayo from the Memphis Grizzlies this summer.
Mayo averaged over 18 points per game in his first two seasons as a starter, but the young shooting guard struggled with his role from the bench, making a move to Boston a good option. The Celtics need an outside threat and playing in the back-court with Rajon Rondo would give Boston one of the top guard combo's in the league.
The NBA could see some major changes this off-season and Boston is one team that could look very different next season, but signing Mayo to a free agent deal could keep them moving forward from the momentum they built this season and that would keep the fans excited.
