Report: Phoenix Suns aggressively pursuing Celtics' Terry Rozier

#Rozier

Terry Rozier has become a hot commodity on the NBA market with several teams reportedly keeping their eye on the Celtics point guard.

No team more so, however, than the Phoenix Suns.

Phoenix has been aggressive in chasing the services of Rozier to bolster their point guard stocks. Isaiah Canaan is currently the team's starting point guard.

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, at least seven teams have kept tabs on Rozier, with Phoenix being the aggressor of the group.

Rozier is set to become a restricted free agent following the 2018-19 season after not signing a rookie-scale extension prior to the season getting underway.

With Kyrie Irving verbally committing to the Celtics longterm, Rozier is seeking a starting role after an electric display running the team during the 2018 playoffs.

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.

Currently, 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.
