Celtics guard Terry Rozier unhappy with playing time

Brad Stevens of the Boston Celtics looks on during the second half against the Minnesota Timberwolves at TD Garden on January 5, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The backup point guard has been receiving about the same amount of playing time as he did last season, though he probably was expecting an increased role following his performance in the postseason last spring. As of now, the C's are happy with their roster, but their phone lines are hot with teams interested in Rozier.

Word is starting to spread that the Boston Celtics point guard, Terry Rozier, is starting to get a little disgruntled about his position with the team.

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.

So it seems to make sense for the Celtics to kick the tires on a potential trade.

While you can never say never with president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, Rozier is a vital part of what Boston is trying to do this season and potentially in the future whether that be signing him to a long-term deal or using him as a trade chip in a potential deal for another star of future assets.

"Not since the season started, no", he said on the radio. 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.

Expected to compete for a championship, the Celtics have gotten off to a relatively slow 6-4 start this season, while posting the league's fifth-worst offense. Boston is set to play in Phoenix tonight.
