Optimism high as Celtics enter a likely active offseason (Yahoo Sports)

The emergence of an All-Star and lots of victories made the Celtics one of the biggest surprises in the NBA this season. It also left Boston with lots of questions following its second straight first-round exit from the playoffs – this one, a six-game loss to the Atlanta Hawks – with a young roster that probably still needs a few more pieces to make the next step. It has lots of draft picks and salary cap space to play with, which promises to make the summer an active one for the Celtics.
