Scottie Pippen thinks Terry Rozier would be a ‘great fit’ for the Bulls
Rozier is a restricted free agent this summer and wants to be a starter in the NBA. As a restricted free agent, Rozier can sign an offer sheet with another team and then the Celtics would have 48 hours to match the offer or let him walk.
The Bulls are rumored to be interested in Rozier. Chicago is looking to upgrade its point guard position, as Kris Dunn hasn’t shown any signs of being a starting-caliber point guard in the NBA.
Rozier had a tough season with the Celtics in 2018-19. He averaged 9.0 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game while shooting 38.7 percent from the field, 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.5 percent from the free-throw line.
Rozier recently said he had to sacrifice his game this season since Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward returned to the lineup. If Irving leaves the Celtics in free agency, Boston would probably re-sign Rozier to a deal which he likes.
If Irving comes back to Boston, though, Rozier will try and get a lucrative offer sheet from another team — like the Bulls — and hope the Celtics don’t match it.
