It will certainly be an eventful offseason for the Celtics with many players coming and going.

Could one of those players be point guard Ricky Rubio? The free agent discussed his thought process and brought up the Celtics.

"There are a thousand possibilities, excluding the teams that have a starting point guard under contract who will remain there," he said in an interview with EuroHoops. "Like Houston or Golden State. Then there’s Boston where you still don’t know if Kyrie Irving will be there. Or Charlotte with Kemba Walker. Things really don’t depend on you but on the other players.

"For example, if Kyrie Irving went to Utah, this wouldn’t be a possibility for me anymore. In the end, they choose first."

The 28-year-old averaged 12.7 points per game and 6.1 assists last year with the Jazz.
