"Scary Terry" may be headed out of Boston.

With Kyrie Irving verbally committing to the Celtics longterm, Rozier is seeking a starting role after an electric display running the team during the 2018 playoffs. Point guard Kyrie Irving has expressed interest in re-signing with Boston. This season, he's averaging 7.5 points, 2.1 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game in 10 contests. The Phoenix Suns have aggressively pursued Rozier, even before firing Ryan McDonough as general manager, league sources said.

National Basketball Association insider Shams Charania reported on Wednesday that several National Basketball Association teams were interested in trading for Rozier.

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. From Ainge roasting Rozier on Twitter to Rozier FaceTimeing Ainge to see who the Celtics were drafting moments before they took Robert Williams, it seems clear the two have a good relationship.

Trump has repeatedly called him "fake news", turning him into a symbol of the president's general animus toward the news media. It all started when CNN's Acosta got into a heated debate with Trump after he asked the president about the migrant caravan.

Rozier will be a restricted free agent in 2019, and could command a contract around $16-20 million per year, according to The Athletic. Currently Isaiah Canaan is the teams starting point guard.

So now seems like the ideal time to trade Rozier. He's clearly a valuable player, but he might be more of a luxury than a necessity for this Celtics team.

With the Celtics' going through some struggles to start the season, teams have once again checked back in with Danny Ainge, per Charania, in hopes that Rozier may come available if Boston were looking to make a change to its roster to position itself better for the postseason.
