The Boston Celtics are going to have to make some interesting decisions this summer, given the possibility that Kyrie Irving, Al Horford and Aron Baynes could each opt out of their deals and become free agents and Terry Rozier is set to become a restricted free agent.

The Celtics likely won’t be able to retain all four players, meaning they may have to make a decision about the future of Rozier ahead of this season’s NBA trade deadline on February 7 or risk him signing an offer sheet they cannot match. And NBA teams are waiting in the wings.

According to Shams Charania of Stadium and The Athletic: “Quietly, at least seven teams have been monitoring Rozier’s status this season, league sources told The Athletic, waiting to see if the Celtics could begin to field trade calls. The Phoenix Suns have aggressively pursued Rozier, even before firing Ryan McDonough as general manager, league sources said.”
