The Boston Celtics are closing in on Banner 18, with the NBA Finals going exactly their way in Game 1 and Game 2. Even if they win, though, this offseason will bring changes; with new players likely to come in and certain players likely to find new homes.

Overall, the Celtics don't have too many in-house free agents they'll be negotiating with. Jrue Holiday would've been the big fish, but he re-signed for four years and $135 million. Derrick White may get his own extension if the C's core could prove championship-worthy, but both sides may wait until the 2025 offseason to ink an extension. Kristaps Porzingis and Jaylen Brown already signed their extensions too, and Jayson Tatum will surely sign his Supermax the first chance he's eligible.

These three, however, are no locks to guarantee -- and may even be in the final days of their Celtics tenures.

Here are 3 Boston Celtics who could be goners in the offseason if they win it all

Luke Kornet

A Brad Stevens favorite of many years, Luke Kornet could finally be noticed by other teams in free agency this offseason. When Porzingis went down with an injury, Kornet stepped up and played well defensively, going for two points, seven rebounds, two assists and a block against the Miami Heat in a closeout Game 5 in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals and exploding for four points, 10 rebounds and a pair of blocks in Game 1 against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Joe Mazzulla went as far as to say the Cs needed Kornet. That statement boosted Kornet's value even higher after his surprising second unit contributions.

Expect a mid-level offer for Kornet if he isn't brought back to Boston on a hometown discount.
