Seven teams interested in trading for Terry Rozier

"Scary Terry" may be headed out of Boston.

I think the Celtics should keep Rozier for as long as possible as insurance for Kyrie Irving.

Now in his fourth year in the league, Rozier is averaging 7.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 22 minutes off of the bench.

With Irving back in the fold, however, 2018 has been a different story.

The Athletic's Shams Charania confirmed that package was indeed made available to Minnesota, with the injured duo of Marquese Chriss and Brandon Knight as the players at the center, but the Wolves weren't interested.

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 Boston Celtics have a boatload of talent on their roster, and it seems like other teams are trying to see if Boston wants to get rid of some players, specifically Terry Rozier.

National Basketball Association insider Shams Charania reported on Wednesday that several National Basketball Association teams were interested in trading for Rozier. The Suns have been the most aggressive in that regard, having started pursuing him even before firing general manager Ryan McDonough on October 8.

Rozier is a restricted free agent after this season and figures to command a contract with an average annual value in the neighborhood of $16-20 million, according to The Athletic. Currently Isaiah Canaan is the teams starting point guard.

There's logic to both arguments, but for now it seems Rozier isn't openly airing grievances to those in power. The Suns will get a good look at Rozier Thursday night, as the two teams are set to face off in Phoenix.

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.
