NBA Rumors: Celtics Have ‘Had Talks’ With Terry Rozier About New Contract


Perhaps Terry Rozier has a future in Boston, after all.

The Celtics have had discussions with the 25-year-old guard about possibly signing a new deal, Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders reported Sunday. Kyler’s report also included a note about Boston having recently engaged with the Houston Rockets on trade talks involving star big man Clint Capela.

Rozier will be a restricted free agent this offseason.

Take a look at Kyler’s tweet:

Last month, Rozier indicated he would not be interested in returning to Boston if it returned the same roster it had last season. Whether Rozier’s desire to re-sign is tied to Kyrie Irving’s looming free agency decision is anyone’s guess.

The Louisville product averaged 9.0 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game last season.
