Many expect that Kyrie Irving has played his last game in a Celtics uniform.

On Wednesday, the Boston Celtics were eliminated from the postseason after being handed a 116-91 loss by the Milwaukee Bucks.

It was a disappointing end as Boston was taken out in five games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Prior to the season, many expected the Celtics to represent the East in the Finals.

Instead, they will prepare for a pivotal offseason. Here’s a look at the notable players who will be free agents (listed in alphabetical order by last name). Those with player options are included. The team’s free agent list was taken from Spotrac. Ages listed are how old they will be when next season begins.

1

Aron Baynes (C) - Player option for $5,323,440, Age: 32

Baynes started 18 games in the regular season after starting 67 in 2017-18. He finished this season with averages of 5.6 points and 4.7 rebounds. He may decide to opt out and look for a multi-year deal.

2

Al Horford (C) - Player option for $28,331,557, Age: 32

A five-time All-Star, Horford likely won't find a team to pay him more next season than what his player option calls for. In 68 games this season, he went on to average 13.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, and 1.3 blocks per contest.
