27-year-old Isaiah Thomas could well be Celtics' oldest player next season

In 2015-16, the Celtics didn't employ a single player in their 30s.  Amir Johnson and Jonas Jerebko, both currently 29, were the senior members of squad.  Johnson and Jerebko each have non-guaranteed contracts for next season that don't kick in until July 3.  They could well both be elsewhere in 2016-17.

The third-oldest guy on the C's last year was Evan Turner (27), who is an unrestricted free agent and will likely command more money this offseason than Boston wants to offer.  After Turner, Isaiah Thomas (who won't turn 28 until next February) is the oldest Celtic.

A 48-win roster with ever core player age-27 and younger definitely bodes well for the future...
