According to Shams, "at least seven" teams have called Boston about Rozier this season, including the Suns, all of whom have been turned down still by Ainge who is apparently set, at least for now, to let this roster work out the kinks on their own.
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 team locked down another of its quality point guard options in Marcus Smart to a four-year, $52 million contract last offseason, and it seems to already have a commitment from starter Kyrie Irving to re-sign next offseason.
Rozier is only 24 years old and is coming off a breakout National Basketball Association playoffs performance in which he helped lead the Celtics to the Eastern Conference finals. After starting at point guard and leading the Celtics to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Rozier is back to coming off the bench and not playing as well as he did past year. Filling in for the injured Kyrie Irving as the C's starting point guard for the entirety of their 19-game 2018 postseason run, Rozier broke out with 16.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game, along with a team-leading 36.6 minutes per game.
The Boston Celtics are 6-4, boast one of the deepest rosters in the National Basketball Association and are arguably the favorite to win the Eastern Conference this year.
