The Celtics and Terry Rozier will not agree to a contract extension prior to Monday's deadline.
According to a source, Rozier is determined to be a starting NBA point guard so the plan is to become an unrestricted free agent next season. He already proved to be a viable starter a team can win with toward the end of last season and in the playoffs so why not try to maximize his earning potential. Since the Celtics are at full health now, Rozier will start the year as a backup, limiting his value to top-150, but is one injury away from jumping into the top-100 again.
