Celtics free agency rumors: Terry Rozier ‘more than open’ to re-signing with Boston if Kyrie Irving leaves

first_img NBA trade rumors: Celtics have ‘checked in’ with Rockets about potential deal for Clint Capela “Just looking for a team that’s going to let me be myself, a team that treats me like family and just go from there,” Rozier said during an appearance on “Jalen and Jacoby” in mid-May. “I’m not a hard person to work with. I’m a team-first type of guy. Whoever I decide to make that decision with, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be great.”Rozier averaged nine points and 2.9 assists in 22.7 minutes per game for Boston in 2018-19. But, he shot just 38.7% from the field and appeared unhappy with his role.“I might have to go (if the Celtics’ roster remains the same),” Rozier said on ESPN’s “First Take” last month. “I put up with a lot this year, so, you know, I said what I said after the season (and) I think we all know that I’m not trying to step into that again.”Celtics general manager Danny Ainge told reporters earlier this month he’s a “big fan” of Rozier.
