There's a lot happening with the Celtics, not only with free agents likely coming and going, but also the NBA draft on Thursday.

The Celtics have three first-round picks -- Nos. 14, 20 and 22 -- so a lot can happen.

Appearing on ESPN Monday night, Adrian Wojnarowski had an update on what the Celtics plan to do, as well as on some of their free agents.

“They need to see what Al Horford is going to do," he said. "He can opt out of his contract and become a free agent, or he could opt out and do an extension with Boston, or he could go somewhere else. But, I think with the fact that they are really concerned, and almost to the point of resignation that Kyrie Irving is going to leave them, it changes the dynamic. Terry Rozier is a restricted free agent, they can match any offer sheet and keep him.

"Boston has a lot of options. They have assets. I am told they have been really aggressive out on the marketplace. Again, three picks in Thursday’s NBA draft. I am told they don’t want to have three rookies on the team. You can expect one, maybe two of those picks somewhere else.”
