Danny Ainge Shoots Down Terry Rozier Rumors

"Scary Terry" may be headed out of Boston.

I think the Celtics should keep Rozier for as long as possible as insurance for Kyrie Irving.

Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier is unhappy with his playing time, and teams are beginning to monitor the situation in pursuit of a potential trade for the volume-scoring guard, according to Bill Simmons of The Ringer. This season, he's averaging 7.5 points, 2.1 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game in 10 contests.

Terry Rozier burst onto the scene last postseason, averaging 16.5 points during the Boston Celtics' playoff run, and many expected him to continue his growth this season. The Phoenix Suns have aggressively pursued Rozier, even before firing Ryan McDonough as general manager, league sources said. It seems like Rozier is still playing like Kyrie Irving is injured. Because it's known that he's unhappy with his role and that he's a restricted free agent, teams will be able to get him at a lower price, though general manager Danny Ainge is denying the reports that Rozier is unhappy. Currently Isaiah Canaan is the teams starting point guard.

Elsewhere in Boston, with Kyrie Irving verbally committing to a return and a new deal with the Celtics, the franchise will eventually have to face a hard decision when it comes to the possible lucrative restricted free agency of Terry Rozier.

The Celtics face the Suns in Phoenix at 9 p.m., while the Bruins host the Canucks at 7 p.m.

Terry Rozier is at the center of some early season trade rumor back-and-forth: The Celtics have started the season with an uneven 6-4 record, despite having one of the deepest rosters in the National Basketball Association. They could offer Rozier as bait for offensive help at a different position.
