At least 7 teams have been monitoring Terry Rozier’s status in 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.

When asked about the subject Thursday, both Rozier and Celtics coach Brad Stevens refuted the notion that the guard - who is averaging 22.7 minutes per game - is displeased with his current situation.

The Athletic reported that at least seven teams have been "monitoring Rozier's status", waiting to see if the Celtics will field trade calls.

Rozier showed he's a more than capable starting point guard as he helped the Celtics reach the Eastern Conference Finals before falling to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Phoenix Suns have aggressively pursued Rozier, even before firing Ryan McDonough as general manager, league sources said. Since the season started we've heard relatively little about teams' pursuit of Butler, aside from the Rockets attempting to get him with a package including four first round picks.

Rozier is set to become a free agent this offseason and likely will command a big payday. His scoring has fallen to only 7.5 points per game, and his lack of playing time and production has led to discord within the Celtics roster, according to reports. With Irving still around, it would be hard to justify paying a backup point guard that much money.

Bill Simmons also believes Rozier will be traded.

"The teams that make the most sense are Phoenix and Orlando, but neither team should be trading an asset to have a BETTER record this season".

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.
