Unexpected early-season Celts subplot: Terry Rozier (restricted FA next summer) has been unhappy w/ his PT all season, word has gotten around the league, and everyone now knows the Celtics need to trade him... which, of course, makes it harder to trade him.

If he's being a problem, then he should sit until he buys in. Doubt that will happen though.

So he should be. Rozier is too good to be a 20mpg backup.

He deserves more (playing time). He'll just have to go elsewhere to get it.

Pretty much confirms what most of us here have observed with him really pressing and forcing things in his short minutes.

Phoenix would be an interesting trade partner.

Saying Rozier is going to get 16-20 mill a season. I have no doubt that Boston will move him. They cannot pay that to him.

Agreed. TPs to who and tar.

If he is staying here for this season and continue with his current play, he will not get that much.

agreed.  his current PT and performance will not earn him that much of a contract. 

would prefer to have him buy into the current team and play for a title (he does provide a really good piece off the bench when he's not playing selfishly) but if the need arises where Danny has to move him, I can only hope Danny is able to land a solid back up PG in that deal plus an extra piece.  I do not want to rely on Kyrie and Smart's health/availability all season and I definitely do not want to rely on Wanamaker for any major contributions.

And I'm sure he knows that.

We have all signalled it. Sometimes what looks great on paper doesn't work in reality. I can hardly hold this attitude against him. He hasn't made a fortune yet and potentially losing tens of millions of dollars, because of lack of playing time is a huge sacrifice. This is completely different from a veteran who takes a paycut or is willing to sacrifice his role for the team.

Hopefully Ainge can get a good deal out of this that works for everyone.

His frustrations are understandable considering that he was very successful in a starting role after Kyrie was shut down.  I doubt that he is upset with coaches or teammates.  It boils down to internal pressure to perform on a nightly basis in a contract year. 

My gut tells me that the market for Terry should be strong if he plays within his role and makes winnings contributions in the playoffs.  Let's assume that he gets dealt before the deadline.  How much additional money does Terry earn himself as a high volume scorer on a mediocre team?  Aren't we reaching a point where efficiency and advanced metrics outweigh raw stats?

I wonder how Rozier felt about the Smart extension. Does he feel like Danny chose Marcus over him, especially with the news that Kyrie wants to resign long-term? Last season, Smart was obviously trying to prove himself to be worthy of an extension, but he still played witin the team concept and always put the team first. I don't get that same impression from Terry so far. Rozier seems like he's trying to prove that he is worth the money for his next team.

I'd like Rozier to succeed even if it's not with us and think Phoenix would be a good fit for him (dunno what we'd get back but).
 
It's worth noting that Simmons said this out of sync with the rest of the show. The podcast has three guests. He very briefly mentioned we have too much talent to the first guest. Then had his next guest. No mention. Then, before the third guest, he says he'd be surprised if Rozier was with the team in 10 days to no one. I've listened since 2010. It's the only time I can think of where he just slipped something in like this between guests. So he didn't hi-jack the first topic with the Terry info but felt it important enough to state what he could've just tweeted.

He shouldn't be complaining when shooting just 35% from the field and averaging just 2.1 assists in 23 minutes per game.
