Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Thursday that Terry Rozier has not expressed frustration about his minutes and he’s unaware of a report suggesting that seven teams are monitoring his situation.
During his weekly appearance on Boston sports radio 98.5 the Sports Hub’s Toucher and Rich program, Ainge said Rozier has not expressed concern about his playing time and that no team has contacted Ainge about Rozier’s availability since the start of the season.
"I talk to Terry quite a bit and I haven’t heard any of those types of things. So I don’t know how reliable any of the sources or rumors are,” said Ainge. "Terry hasn’t shared any of those with me, and I think he would if he was feeling that way. Terry knew going in this year what his situation, what his role was going to be, and he was as excited and enthusiastic as anybody on our team for the upcoming season. I know for sure that Terry would love to be playing more more minutes but there’s a lot of guys on the team that would love to be playing more minutes.”
Ainge said he has a close relationship with Rozier and believes, if he was frustrated, he would voice his concerns with team management.
